This funny, optimistic story is written like a diary.

Sparky, a.k.a. Spencer Allen Douglass, uses his journal to write about his life(he takes pills to “fix his wiggles”) and confide his secret thoughts (“I didn’t know the store made pills to fix MY stuff!”). The book brings the reader inside the mind of a child with ADHD, as he learns how to cope with his condition.
