Summary
Aaron sounds like a hyena when he laughs, and he can't sit still, but he has managed to make a couple of friends--and at least one enemy. Now he is anxiously awaiting the arrival of his father, whom he hasn't seen in eight years. Will his dad leave again because he thinks Aaron is too weird? Will the school bully beat him up? And will his dad ever be proud of him?
Summary
Aaron, who lives with his grandmother since his mother's death, copes with hyperactivity, his relationships with his best friend and a school bully, and his grandmother's health as he awaits his father's return with a surprise.
