9 posts | 55 read | 5 to read
One of the best-selling young adult books of all time, written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Paul Zindel. John Conlan is nicknamed The Bathroom Bomber after setting off firecrackers in the boys bathroom 23 times without ever getting caught. John and his best friend, Lorraine, can never please their parents, and school is a chore. To pass the time, they play pranks on unsuspecting people and it's during one of these pranks that they meet the Pigman. In spite of themselves, John and Lorraine soon get caught up in Mr. Pignatis zest for life. In fact, they become so involved that they begin to destroy the only corner of the world that has ever mattered to them. Can they stop before its too late?'

Randomly remembered reading this for class in junior high school. Became obsessed with the idea of revisiting it.

Another favorites of mine growing up! This book written by Paul Zindel was on my reading list going into the 6th grade. I remember randomly getting this one from the library and fell in love with the story. It is about two sophomores John and Lorraine who are troubled until they meet an old man name Mr. Pignati! There are other books in the series including one with other characters! You‘ll see John and Lorraine again though! Best for 6-8th grade!

AmyPerezCubas For the activity with this book, my activities would be small group discussions and asking questions. With this book we are able to talk about the meaning of the book. 2y

The ending made me hate this book but I guess that just shows how well this book did to make me care so much for what happens to all the characters

My aunt was telling me about this book at Christmas, so I read it. It just might be the most depressing coming of age story I‘ve ever read. Very well written, it tells the story of two young teens who inadvertently befriend a lonely old man. Disregard this ugly cover - it has been republished with a much nicer one!

Bookwm85forever I remember reading this book years ago!!! 2y
Sarahreadstoomuch Really @Bookwm85forever ? That‘s awesome! I‘d never heard of it before my aunt brought it up. She read it because it is now assigned reading in the school where she works. 2y

Listening to an A. S. King lecture and she mentions this author repeatedly. Very, very good. See more Zindel books in my future. 4/5
