Caleb and Davis: normally, Joey is super hyper. He bounces off walls, climbs fences, cuts off the tip of someone's nose. He got in lots of trouble. At the end of the book, he is calm. This is because the doctor gave him a patch to wear. It helped him stay still and calm.

Stefanie and Giselle-Theodore Boone- Mr.Boone changed because he is usually down to earth and always calm, but close to the end he started worrying a lot and that made our brains kind of get confused.
