Joey who takes medication to keep him from getting too wired goes and spends the summer with his dad he doesn't know. His dad helps coach his baseball team to a possible championship. Then something unexpected happens to Joey. You will have to read and find out what it is.

I liked the book because I laughed a lot. My favorite part was at the beginning because the little dogs were so funny. I liked how well Joey and dad were so good together. I didn't like grandma because she was bossy. You will find out in the book. This book made me wonder what if I was in his spot what would I do.

I think other people should read this book because it's good and will remind them of things in their life. People who like funny books should read this book. I think people will like the end best. You will have to read it and find out.
