Description
Joey Pigza really wants his six-week visit with his dad to count, to show him he's not as wired as he used to be, to show his dad how much he loves him. But Carter Pigza's not an easy guy to love. He's eager to make it up to Joey for past wrongs and to show him how to be a winner, to take control of his life. With his coaching, Joey's even learned how to pitch a baseball, and he's good at it. The trouble is, Joey's dad thinks taking control means giving up the things that keep Joey safe. And if he wants to please his dad, he's going to have to play by his rules, even when the rules don't make sense.

      • content: What if Joey Pigza were forced to spend the summer with his dad and his grandma? What if his dad took him off his meds? And what if Jack Gantos hadn't written this sequel? What if Listening Library hadn't decided to record it? What if Jack Gantos hadn't been asked to read it? What if? What if? What if? It's the question that fills Joey's head and spews from his mouth as he zips along the pothole-riddled highway with his mom on the way to spend an enforced summer vacation with his errant dad. With the same brilliance that characterized his reading of Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key, Gantos captures Joey's frantic pace, his breathless questioning, his terror at losing the control he has finally gained on medication. This sequel, more somber and chilling than the first volume, is a must-hear follow-up to the story of a boy we have all grown to love. T.B.

        In a starred review, PW
        said, "Like its predecessor, Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key, this high-voltage, honest novel mixes humor, pain, fear and courage with deceptive ease." Ages 10-up.
