The Key That Swallowed Joey Pigza (Joey Pigza, #5) Review Ì 0 Ers a key that could unlock the secrets to his father's whereabouts a mystery that must be solved before Joey can even hope that his broken family might somehow come back together if only it doesn't pull him apart firstThis title has Common Core connections. For the last time author Jack Gantos returns to beloved character Joey Pigza and his exceptionally messed up family While Joey tries to go back to school after a stint at homeschooling by his mother things at home are not good His mother is suffering from acute depression and worried that she may harm her new baby Carter Jr Joey s father is on the lam having disappeared after having a face lift that isn t healing properly When his mother checks herself into the hospital Joey must stay home and take care of his baby brother while thwarting his father s plans to start life fresh with the new baby Joey has enough to deal with in trying to get himself on an even keep once again and find the medical patches he uses to counteract his ADD but with the help of his wisecracking blind girlfriend Olivia he keeps it together and even manages to clean up the house Filled with humor and pathos this book leaves readers with a sense of hope that things might just work out for the Pigzas but it won t be easy for any of them The opening scenes describing the family s filthy roach infested apartment are vividly painted in an almost too close for comfort fashion There are little touches such as how Joey uses food stamps to pay for the pizza delivered each night that make this story ring trueIt s easy to see that many of Joey s problems are not of his own making but he must do the best with the cards that he has been dealt While I didn t want Joey and Carter to end up in foster care I also knew that all his sudden responsibilities were a lot to put on someone like Joey They d be too much for any youngster As the series comes to an end I m sad to say goodbye to these well drawn characters Anyone contemplating a teaching career will want to read all five of the Joey Pigza books

The Key That Swallowed Joey Pigza (Joey Pigza, #5) Review Ì 0 The fifth and final book in the groundbreaking Joey Pigza series brings the beloved chronicle of this wired wacky and wonderful boy to a crescendo of chaos and craziness as everything goes topsy turvy for Joey just as he starts to get his feet on the ground. This last installment is the darkest book in the Pigza series Joey always makes me laugh but there s always the dark undercurrent in these stories Joey grows up a little in each book and Gantos always leaves us with hope that if not all will be well with Joey it will be as good as he and his dysfunctional family can make it I will be interested to see how my 6th graders take to this one I certainly have some who are living Joey s life in one way or another Lane Smith s new cover art for the series is a win
