Joey's dad just roared into town on a motorcycle, his mom is chasing her ex-husband away with a broomstick, and his grandma's camped out on the couch behind a plastic shower curtain. What's more, Joey's chihuahua has been dognapped, and his mom insists that he be homeschooled with a mean blind girl and her super-religious mother. Welcome to Joey's world.

With his new self-assumed role as "Mr. Helpful," Joey's on a mission to make everything and everyone better. Can Joey accomplish all this or will his wild, wired behavior spin him out of control all over again?

I read the book “What would Joey do?” By: Jack Gantos. Which was about a young boy with a mother and a father who are divorced and the grandmother lives with Joey and his mom. His dad comes into town and rides his motorcycle all over the neighborhood and disrupts the entire family and town.
I loved it. It was the most extremely “BEST BOOK I HAD EVER READ!” I definitely recommend reading it. Jack Gantos is my favorite writer. I am looking forward to any new books that might come out and I definitely would do a book report on it. He give the readers such a visual imagery in my head every sentence I read. He uses such great details on all the characters and places they go to in the story. Out of a rating of 1-10 I give it a 5,000,000,000.
