"How do I start this essay?" "What should I do first?" "Why does everything feel so difficult?" If you are a teenager with ADHD these questions may be all too familiar. Offering information, guidance, tips and strategies on these and many other common struggles, this fun and lively book takes the reader on an encouraging, upbeat and optimistic journey towards developing practical solutions to everyday frustrations. A fabulous read!
Anna Munt, history student at Cambridge, owner of an ADHD brain
This book is very informative, but still easy to read if you have ADHD. Skipped a chunk of text because your brain was being funky? Doesn't matter; next section still makes sense and you can read what you missed later! Struggle with starting on large daunting blocks of text? Well, not to worry because all the essentials are in bold and you can go from there! And once you've finished reading it, you'll have a better understanding of ADHD: its strengths, weaknesses and countermeasures. Clearly written, engaging and informative.
Dr Janet Hoskin, Associate Professor of Education, University of East London
At last, a book that helps to explain how ADHD affects girls and women, in easy-to-read language, offering creative advice for living their best life. This is a must read for any teenage girl with ADHD, dealing with a huge range of issues such as organisation, self-esteem, relationships, and schoolwork, showing that ADHD can bring skills as well as challenges. I loved the 'reflection activities' within each chapter, and the opportunities to think about how to organise your life positively and pro-actively.
Leanne Maskell, activist and author of the Model Manifesto and ADHD: An A-Z
Essential reading for any teenage girl with ADHD, this book would have helped me beyond belief trying to navigate my undiagnosed ADHD with growing up. An accessible, highly engaging and empowering guide to ADHD for young women everywhere, it introduced me to parts of myself I didn't know existed. I couldn't put it down.
Pooky Knightsmith, author of The Healthy Coping Colouring Book and Journal
Hurrah for this book full of "aha!" moments and practical ideas aimed specifically at teenage girls with ADHD. This book celebrates strengths and navigates challenges all in a highly accessible (but never condescending) format which is perfect for dipping in and out of.
