What kids book am I thinking of ?

this is a book that I read in like 6th grade ( 1999 - 2000 ) ..I only remember pieces of it but I have always wanted to find it ...

There is a community that it takes place in, the main character is a boy ( he has a baby sibling and maybe also another sibling) .... the community they live in is suppose to be like a perfect place to live .... they give the kids medicine so they wont rebel... and a part of the story tells how she secretly stopped taking the medicine and he started liking a girl....

at the end he drives his bike away from the community with his baby sibling so they can live normal.
