! 11-year-old Lorenzo Ventura lives on a peach farm in Pennsylvania with his mother and grandfather. His father was a soldier who died while serving his country, a war hero whose absence leaves a void in young Lorenzo’s life. So when their family’s pig gives birth, Lorenzo adopts the runt of the litter, naming him Marty after his late father. Marty is extraordinary. He thinks he’s a dog. And he acts like one, too. However, as Marty grows and approaches 350 pounds, Lorenzo’s family farm might not be big enough for him. When Marty causes a dangerous accident, Lorenzo knows Marty’s time is up. But he’s not willing to let go of his best friend so easily. He'll do anything and everything to save him. But will everything be enough? Your young readers will adore this warm and heart-wrenching story of friendship, family, and buried secrets. Ages 10 and up. 208pp. Signed by Paul Griffin.
