In The Pigman by Paul Zindel, to Sophomores John and Lorraine, nothing is important. They certainly can never please their parents. To pass the time, they play pranks on unsuspecting people. It's during one of these pranks that they meet the "Pigman", a kind, fat, balding old man. You will soon find how the 3 make a connection. I really enjoyed this novel and most High School students would as well.
