Description
(National Book Award Finalist; School Library Journal Best Book of the Year) "I think my brain is filled with bees," says Joey Pigza in this 1998 novel, a winner or finalist for numerous young people's literature prizes. Joey is a good kid, but his teachers never know what he's going to do next. Whether he's walking in circles down the hall, sharpening his finger in the pencil sharpener, or swallowing his house key, Joey can't sit still for more than a minute. Newbery Medalist and Scott O'Dell Award winner Jack Gantos vividly evokes the spinning, seesawing energy of a boy with severe attention deficit disorder in this first book in the Newbery Honor–winning series for readers 10 to 13.

"In this rollercoaster of a ride, ingenuously and breathlessly narrated by Joey himself, readers are treated to an up-close and personal introduction to life with attention deficit disorder."—Horn Book
