About The Book
This is the story of two high school students, John and Lorraine, who find themselves looking for entertainment in order to escape their unhappy homes. During a prank charity solicitation phone call, they end up meeting with Mr. Pignati, who they name the Pigman. They befriend him, at first in an effort to get $10 from him for their fake charity. They spend most of their free time at his house to escape from their own homes and because he seems genuinely concerned about them and buys them things. They discover that he has a troubling secret, which is why he is so desperate for their company. They end up destroying their relationship with this nice old man because of the learned behavior that keeps them from forming and maintaining meaningful relationships with most people. The unique narration from both main characters in turn provides each one's perspective on the situations in which they find themselves.
