Brit C. Ward's Piggy really isn't too far out there compared to other books. Yes, the initial concept isn't something I have seen addressed very much in the YA world, but at it's core this book is about two teenagers trying to beat the odds and form a friendship. In addition to their struggles, there is a little bit of romance, plenty of family baggage, and an ending readers will not soon forget. I was rather impressed with this novel. The characters feel very real and don't come off as fake (some fictional teenage girls seem too over the top and exaggerated for me) and seem like the kind of people I would expect to come across in real life. The situation and scenarios are also extremely realistic. This is certainly the kind of book that I know I will want to read over and over again.
