Originally published in hardcover in 1972, A Day No Pigs Would Die was one of the first young adult books, along with titles like The Outsiders and The Chocolate War. In it, author Robert Newton Peck weaves a story of a Vermont boyhood that is part fiction, part memoir. The result is a moving coming-of-age story that still resonates with teens today.

    " I read this book in the 1970's when I was maybe 13. It was the first book I had ever read that made me cry - and that was such an incredible experience. I have been afraid to read the book again - for fear that the reality won't live up to my memory! "

    " great book with a sober theme of what real farm life is like. You will also like "Where the red fern grows" if you like this book. "

    " Somehow managed to refrain from reading A Day No Pigs Would Die for all these years since middle school. I now happen to think it's one of the most beautiful pieces of literature I have ever experienced. Simple, wise, incredibly visceral. "
