Bluefish by Pat Schmatz or Tex by S.E. Hinton. Jack Gantos' Joey Pigza books might be a little young but might also fit the bill.

I just finished If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch, a female main character, but a very powerful story. Dysfunctional mother is an understatement.

Subject: [Library Media] Book for troubled student

I am trying to help a teacher find a book that will help a student whose father has just kicked him out of the house to try and save his marriage.  Now he has to go live with his mother who is dysfunctional--he has to cook and clean and be the one responsible.  I thought of WAITING FOR NORMAL by Conner, but I would like to find a book that would appeal to an 8th grade boy.

Any suggestions?  Thanks!
