Joey Pigza is wired. He can't sit still. He can't stop himself from shouting 'Can I get back to you on that?' in response to math questions. He can't stop himself from putting his finger in the pencil sharpener. The moment something occurs to him, he tries it. This gets him into loads of trouble. He can only stop himself when his medication works, which is only sometimes. Taking life at a sprint is taking its toll, and when one of his spontaneous decisions leads to a classroom accident, Joey must suffer the consequences. Can he turn things around and show the world that he really is a good kid?

Third grade is complicated for Grace Stewart. First of all there are four Graces in her class and on the first day her teacher Mrs. Linegar, rhymes with vinegar, decides to find different names for each of them so there is Grace W. and Grace F., Gracie and her. Just because she asked to called just Grace she ends up being 'Just Grace' for the rest of the school year! Add to this the scary teacher, Mrs. Luther that lives next door, the most disgusting boy in third grade and a missing cat and Grace's third grade year becomes quite a challenge. Luckily Grace has a good heart and some very good friends, some that she didn't even know she had.
