Joey Pigza Loses Control by Jack Gantos

Joey Pigza is hyperactive and has it under control with medication. When he visits his father for the summer all seems well. He pitches winning games for the little league team his father coaches, becomes more independent, and builds a relationship with Grandma. All seems well - until his father decide.s to throw away his medication. The writing perfectly conveys the frenetic, frantic world of hyperactivity. Fun, witty and touching.  A Newbery Honor Book.
