Good book to read about the life of Joey Pigza and his dysfunctional family . Joey holds the family together quite admirably and this story moves along quickly . One has to cheer for Joey who has his own difficulties and now to have the responsibility of missing school , having to take care of his toddler brother while his mom is trying to get herself better in the Hospital . All this while trying to prevent his Dad from taking his little brother away from them. Great story about his ADHD , his struggles and his triumphs over the adversity he encounters .
