This novel was a surprisingly serious and heart wrenching story about a boy 4th or 5th grade with ADHD whose life is totally out of control Joey Pigza's dad ran off when he was just a kindergartener and his mom followed Left to be raised by a well intentioned but emotionally abusive grandmother who shares symptoms of ADHD Joey is made to feel responsible for his mom's abandonment and his bad behavior Hopefully waiting at the front window for his mom day after day his grandmother would tease See I just saw her walk by and she saw that you were not sitting still and she just kept on walking 'cause your mom does not want to come home to a bad boy But Joey is not bad he is out of control because of his ADHDHis mom does return one day tries to be a good mom and must face Joeys problems at school His teacher expects him to follow all of the rules just like all the other kids; but try as he might he finds himself compelled to say and do things that get him into trouble Swallowing his house key is just one of many situations that finally culminate in his getting kicked out of school His new school Lancaster County Special Education Center finally addresses his academic physical social emotional and family issuesI did not find this book humorous but rather an important cry for help for those children with ADHD I have worked with students with this disability who shared many similar problems with their medication family life and teachers who were unable to handle their behavior issues Joey Pigza offers a glimpse into what life is like from a child's perspective These kids are not bad They don't need punishment they need helpI would recommend this book for upper elementary and middle school students It offers children an important perspective for understanding those with ADHD and provides many important issues for discussion

I am very double minded about this bookLikes I really like how this book is written from Joey's perspective It describes how a child with ADHD might experience his life from his point of view I think this is an important viewpoint to have available It is also very well writtenDislikes This book is copyrighted 1998 but I had to look twice just to be sure that it didn't say 1968 or 1978 The portrayal of the Special Education classroom as one that is totally segregated and in the basement is so antiuated as to be a lie Although the school recognizes that Joey has something different about him the way they handle his behavior is also outmoded running laps around the playground running errands to the nurse andor principal's office etc Joey himself says that he spends very little time in the classroom How is he supposed to get an education Until Joey is expelled for hurting another student very little is being done Joey is told to be good Although I am sure that ADHD kids had these school experiences in the past this book is not written as an historical fiction novel I am trying to decide if I want to keep this book in my classroom
