Borrowed this young adult book from Kindle to read to my son. We are liking it so far. Boy wants a dog but his weird mom gets him a pig instead. Cute premise. Of course there is the obligatory bullying angle – it’s everywhere these days. The book is mostly funny, though. I especially appreciate that the author bothers to make stuff up. You’d think most fiction writers would but it is amazing how often they don’t, relying instead on well known actual stuff such as the names of products and stores and so on.
