Book Review #973
Joey Pigza Loses Control by Jack Gantos
Rating: zero stars (out of four)
I just didn't see the point of this book. I kept reading because I thought it would get better and there would be some grand truth at the end, but I have no clue why this got a Newbery Honor. The main character wasn't someone I liked and his thoughts were annoying and jarring. I also didn't like the relationship between his dad and I wondered how this book could end happily with all the crazy stuff that was going on. The ending was a disappointment and I felt like I had just wasted my time reading this entire book. I would not recommend.
