Baker & Taylor
Labeled as an imbecile or a monster by his abusive mother and neighbors, Jack Plum, born with a disfigurement, seeks refuge in his "pigtopia," a shelter in his cellar with a tunnel to the woods, that he shares with his beloved pet pigs and with Holly Lock, a sensitive young teenager who lives nearby. 50,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
From novelist, playwright, and poet Kitty Fitzgerald comes one of the sweetest and most compelling tales of friendship, betrayal, sacrifice, and redemption since classics like Of Mice and Men and Charlotte's Web. Society has rejected Jack Plum: born with a disfigurement, he is labeled either a monster or an imbecile by his abusive mother and thoughtless neighbors. But Jack has created a haven, his "pigtopia," a shelter in his cellar, with a tunnel out into the woods, built with his long-lost father, and shared with his beloved pet pigs. Then Jack meets Holly Lock, a sensitive young teenager who lives nearby, and offers her a piglet. Together they forge an unlikely and beautiful friendship. But society and fate intervene, and Jack's secret world is threatened by forces beyond his control.
