Description - Pig-Out Inn by Lois Ruby

In a new town, Dovi's family befriends a young boy who was abandoned at their restaurant Dovi Chandler collects yearbooks. She has them from all over the country: mementos of every time her parents uprooted her to a new town, and a new crackpot business venture. They've managed apartment houses, tried to save failing bookstores, even sold Tupperware, but all it's ever gotten them is debt and a new yearbook for Dovi to add to the pile. It's not until her parents take over the Pig-Out Inn that Dovi feels ready to put down roots. It's just another truck-stop diner, but to Dovi it's home-and she soon discovers that she and her family aren't the only ones living there. Hiding out in 1 of the cabins is a 9-year-old boy named Tag. He was stashed there by his father, who is negotiating a painful divorce. Tag is an entrepreneurial genius, and his brilliant business schemes will offer Dovi and her mother a chance to make the Pig-Out Inn a success-and learn the true meaning of family. "Full of humor . . . Fresh and noteworthy." -School Library Journal Lois Ruby is the author of 18 books for middle graders and teens, including Steal Away Home, Miriam's Well, The Secret of Laurel Oaks, Rebel Spirits, Skin Deep, and The Doll Graveyard.
