Reviews from Readers
The Making of Malory
Behind the story of ADHD AND ME.
ADHD AND ME was a project inspired by personal experience. Growing up with ADHD, I faced many challenges like that of Malory. As I grew over the years, I read many books about ADHD. But, I came across two problems. 1. Most of the books were written for adults, not children. And 2. Most of the books involving ADHD were focused on boys. I wanted to see a book that spoke directly to a child while showcasing ADHD from their perspective. And I wanted it to be told from a girl.
Having the experience and passion for the topic, writing the story was a no brainer. I loved sharing Malory with others. I wanted her to be an inspiration. I wanted her to make kids see themselves and say, “Hey, I feel that way!” “Hey, I think that too!” And more than anything… I wanted them to know that they were just as important, intelligent, and wonderful as everyone else.
It has been my greatest joy hearing positive feedback from readers who express sentiments like, “I teared up, because this exactly describes what my son/daughter goes through.” To know that my story could help someone else to feel seen, understood, accepted, is a priceless feeling that no amount of words can fully express.
I hope you enjoy the story of Malory. And if you do, please share your review! Each review helps another person to discover something new. Every. Voice. Counts. Use yours!
