Publisher's Summary

It's a whole new school year, and Joey Pigza is determined to leave his wired ways in the past and be the paying attention, focused, straight-A student he believes he can be. But seated next to him is Bean, a new girl who is in foster care and who happens to have many of the same attention issues Joey has. From day one, Joey can see all the parallels in their behavior, and he's worried that her hyperactive secret sauce is going to tarnish his year.    

After a rocky start, and with some help from the school guidance counselor, Joey and Bean realize that they're "double-trouble soul mates who found each other!" And more than that, they might even be long lost siblings who somehow got separated at birth! And if they're long lost siblings, Joey needs to do everything he can to make sure his maybe-sister gets out of foster care and home with a perfecto adoptive family. With appearances by Pablo the wonder dog, Granny, and even Joey’s Mom, this Audible Original will make you think about family and loyalty in a whole new way.      

Written and performed by the Award-winning Jack Gantos, the eighth installment of Joey Pigza's antics will make you laugh and warm your heart all at the same time.

The missing half of Joey pizza

The book was really funny. I have not read the first other books but this one is still really good. It’s very interesting and it Has a lot of funny chapters. If you don’t wanna hear a spoiler then stop reading. And my favorite part was when they painted their house white and they ate all white food and they dressed up all white and then they only drink milk and white food.
