The Pigman is a young adult novel by Paul Zindel. It was published in 1968. The novel takes the form of a confession by two teens, John Conlan and Lorraine Jensen, who describe how they developed a friendship with Mr. Pignati, a.k.a. the Pigman, which ended in a betrayal and the Pigman's tragic death. It was considered controversial because it was about teens taking advantage of others and it did not cast a positive light on them. Zindel crafted the novel in an expert manner and if you are a collector of banned books this is one you want on your library shelf.
