Hyperactive by Scott Sava, illustrated by Joseph Bergin III

It's back to school for Joey....and a few things have changed. Over the summer, some kids grew...and some kids didn't. And time seems to have slooooowwwweeed down. Will his boring classes ever end? But maybe it's not time that's slowed down; Joey's speeeded up! Joey discovers he has super fast abilities, but he's not the only one who thinks they could be useful!

This is a fast-paced comic adventure with plenty of funny bits. Joey's new super abilities interact hilariously with the real world and there's a side-splitting twist at the end. No angst, world crises, or tortured relationships, just a kid who has discovered he can do something really cool...and, of course, it lands him in trouble.

Verdict: I really love this adventure and highly recommend it. It's quite popular at the library! The paperback isn't as sturdy as I would like, but it will hold for many circulations.
