Publisher's Summary

Being a kid is like having two permanent police officers watching you all the time - even when you're going to the bathroom.

At least that’s how it feels to Billy March. He’s been grounded for 63% of the past month. The thing is, every time Billy almost gets his parents’ trust back, his mind wanders off, and he causes another disaster! Like the time he and his best friend Keenan decided to play droid war in a parking lot — and ended up launching a shopping cart into a car…

Now Mom and Dad are threatening to send Billy to a psychologist. They may even make him take brain drugs! But deep down, Billy really worries that Dad wishes he had a different son. He’ll never be as perfect as his two sisters. Maybe he doesn’t belong in this family at all.

But maybe, just maybe, talking to a “shrink” won’t be as terrible as Billy thinks. Even if the doctor’s last name sounds eerily like the word grave…

Terrible

*spoilers* This story was terrible. A kid struggling with concentrating that is leading to getting in trouble is a simple enough premise, but the way the story is told for a kids book is highly inappropriate. The father is verbally abusive. The boy is forced to see a psychiatrist but nothing is explained to him as to what or what the hope is for the visits. Horrible mishandling of the boy by his parents leads to him running away and barely avoiding being sexually molested at a train station. Thankfully is dad shows up out of the blue at just the right time. They go home and suddenly everything is totally fine after everyone apologizes. Lots of inappropriate topics for kids to read.
