Imagine navigating your way in a system that isn??t designed for you and your multi-sensory learning style. Eleven-year-old S. A. Leigh offers funny, poignant confessions and practical advice to ADHD kids about not just surviving but thriving among conceptual thinkers.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: S. A. Leigh, a pseudonym, is an 11-year-old writer living in small-town USA slogging through homework (but making honor roll) and training to be a fierce ninja. In her free time, she surfs YouTube for outrageous videos and plays the violin. She also publishes her prose in national children's magazines (under her actual name), writes fan fiction, and has won a writing award for a short story about bullying.
S. A. Leigh's family life includes her weary parents; a bold, moody older sister; and two poorly trained rescue dogs. Life is never dull, but writing inspirations are plentiful ... thanks to ADHD and the many imaginative outbursts it brings.
