A service of the Walter Reed Middle School Library, Reed Reads Book Reviews are created by students and staff. Reviewers provide a rating: 5 = An absolute must read --- 4 = Very good, highly recommended --- 3 = Enjoyable --- 2 = Passable --- 1 = Don't bother. If you would like to join our panel of reviewers, see Mr. Bobrosky in the library. Anyone may post comments, allowing you to provide your own opinion and rating!
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.
