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
"[What Would Joey Do? is] memorable, honest, fresh, exciting, truly eye-opening, and should not be missed by child or adult." (Amazon.com)

I love this series. If you have read my other review, you know that I know someone named Tanner. Tanner was just like Joey, he had special needs and left our school to go to Colorado because of a, family emergency. I would recommend this book...no this whole series to Tanner and his family. I liked the uniqueness of this series. You could search half a library and not find another book about someone with special needs. Although I am sad that this is the last book, I can always read something else, right? Thank you for reading my review.
(I’d like my actual name to stay anonymous. Thank you.)

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.
