Pigtopia is by Kitty Fitzgerald. Jack Plum was born disfigured and mentally challenged. He has been labeled a monster and freak by thoughtless neighbors and his chronically ill mother. He, and his now missing father, built a sanctuary in the basement where Jack now shares himself with his beloved pigs. When he decides to share his world with a sensitive teenager who lives nearby he risks everything. A spellbinding tale of friendship, prejudice, and betrayal that will capture a reader's imagination and tug at your heart strings. A truly heartwarming and excellent book.
