Sequel to Joey Pigza Loses Control, a Newbery Honor Book

Are they flirting or fighting? This is Joey Pigza's question when the fireworks suddenly start to explode between his long-separated mom and dad, whom he's never really had a chance to see together. The more out of control his parents get, the less in control Joey feels and the more he wants to help make things better. But Joey's ailing tell-it-like-it-is grandmother wants her grandson to see it like it is with his unpredictable parents. Knowing that she is fading fast, she needs Joey to hurry up and show that he can break the Pigza family mold by making a friend in the outside world. The only potential candidate, however, is Olivia Lapp — Joey's blind homeschooling partner, who brags that she is "blind as a brat" and acts meaner to Joey the more desperate he gets for her friendship — even if Joey senses there's more to her than meets the eye.

In this dazzling episode, Jack Gantos's acclaimed hyperactive hero discovers that settling down isn't good for anything if he can't find a way to stop the people he cares about from winding him up all over again.

 
What Would Joey Do? is a 2003 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Synopsis:

Joeys trying to make friends—with the meanest girl he knows.

Synopsis:

Joeys dad keeps circling their house on his motorcycle.

Joeys mom chases him with a broom, when shes not with her new boyfriend.

Joeys grandmother says shell haunt Joey when she dies if he doesnt find a friend.

How did Joey end up being the normal one in his family?

Clearly its up to him to keep his mom and dad from killing each other.

But finding a friend? Hes in homeschool with only one other kid.

The meanest girl hes ever met.

Still, the Pigza family may be crazy, but they never back down from a challenge.
