In this final book of the Joey Pigza trilogy, Jack Gantos' acclaimed hero is attempting a breathtaking balancing act as he tries to keep a handle on his wild, weird behavior without letting his hyperactively helpful ways spin him out of control all over again.
What the critics say

I can't get over how much I enjoy listening to these books with my kids. Joey faces so much in his life. Themes of love, loss, grief and dysfunctional families are part of Joey's story this time. This kid sure needs a hug. His optimism holds strong and he keeps on doing things just the way Joey would.
