I Am Not Joey Pigza

The 4th Joey Pigza book is here!  I am so glad Jack Gantos decided to add another book to the "trilogy".  Now that I'm in Harry Potter withdrawal, it's good to catch up with another old friend who I thought was gone.

Gantos, Jack.

He's back.  And his life is about to change dramatically.  Grandma Pigza has died and now Joey is living with his mother.  But Carter is back in the picture.  He's won some money in the lottery and he and Fran are getting remarried.  But in typical non-traditional fashion, Carter has decided that  they need to reinvent themselves and become new people.  Hmm.  Not so easy you say?  Well, not for Charles and Maria Heinz and their son Freddy.  Joey isn't too sure about this.  He really doesn't want to be Freddy.  What's wrong with just being Joey Pigza?  Will he be able to leave the old Joey behind just be changing his name and moving to a new home?
