Hyperactive by Scott Christian Sava is about 12 year old Joey Caram suddenly becoming very very fast. He can do his homework between commercial breaks, run faster than 100 miles per hour, and clean his room in 4 seconds.
His parents decide this condition can't possibly be normal and take Joey to be checked out. That gets the attention of a local pharmaceutical company who want to use Joey in their dastardly experiments.
To me it reads like a Bewitched plot. Imagine if one of McMann and Tate's unscrupulous clients got wind of one of Tabitha's special magic induced talents and decided to exploit her for their bottom line. Of course Darrin and Samantha (and her many relatives) would intervene but it would take some doing and there would be some near misses. That's what happens here.
