When I asked our school librarian if there was a book about children taking medication, she pointed at the book Joey Pigsa Loses Control, and that was my first introduction to author Jack Gantos. There is a whole Pigsa series, but this book is about 11-year old Joey who has to deal with ADD, and while visiting his father, Joey stops taking his medication.Gantos is also the author of the Rotten Ralph series.
