Review:
Joey finally feels a sense of self-control over his hyperactivity now that he receives daily medication patches. Visiting his divorced father for the summer seems like a good idea until his father, a mirror image of the pre-meds Joey, flushes all of the boy’s patches down the toilet. The comic elements of this truly funny story only enhance the deeper fundamentals of Joey’s discoveries about identity and familial love.
