"The Pigman" from Paul Zindel.
John goes to Franklin High School and he is about 16 years old. Earlier he used to put bombs on the boy's toilet. Though he was too clever for the Dean and therefore he never catch him. John smokes and drinks a lot, too. He is six feet tall, has longish brown hair and big blue eyes. John tries to distort every person and situation. His father is a compulsive alcoholic (as Lorraine says). Generally, John is a funny person who always wants to play jokes on others (e. g. by telephone). Lorraine Jensen and he are good friends but although they often quarrel.
