The one really cool thing, that I liked about Joey Pigza, was he is kind of like me, because he cares a lot about people. He loves dogs. He has a Chiwawa/ Dashund named Pablo. Another thing that I liked about Joey Pigza was he wanted to change the world, by making himself change. A question I thought of was, Why does Joey want to make the world a better place? How could he make the world a better place?
One of the two things that I think that the author should have done differently was making the book longer so that Joey could find his dad. If his parents got back together then it could get Joey better officially. Another thing that I thought that the author could have done was make Joey make the world a better place. One thing that I think he could have done to make the world a better place was helping kids who were like him out and help Charlie work better with his arms and legs.
I would recommend this book to other teenagers and children because it is a realistic book. I think it is a life changing story because there are kids who are like Joey Pigza. I do know a couple people who are like Joey! I think that this is a book that I would read to my two year old brother named Jacob. I think this is a great book for kids to learn how to read. If there is a theme to this book it would be that don’t take your life for granted because life is worth living. You don’t know what could happen tomorrow.
I know that there can be only four paragraph’s about this book but I am adding another one because I really did like this book because I felt like it was heart warming. I really did like Joey as a person and I felt like I was in his shoes. I think that Joey is a great kid, and he just doesn’t know right from wrong yet.
