3.5. There was nothing wrong with this book, per se. I had a hard time maintaining interest and I suspect that's because I was hoping it'd be less pig, more gymnastics (it came up on a list of sports-themed MG stories). There were a lot of characters to juggle too, between several siblings to a half a dozen friends who didn't particularly stand out to me (even best friend Lucy was a bit player, imo).

There's a lot going on in this story, but I appreciate the attempt at portraying a family that's socioeconomically disadvantaged.
