Blake Taylor's mother first suspected he had ADHD when he, at only three years of age, tried to push his infant sister and her car seat off the kitchen table. As time went by, Blake developed a reputation for being unpredictable and impulsive. He shattered sliding glass doors to watch them break, was lashed to a chair by a frustrated babysitter and, yes, set fires at his family's dinner table. Blake was diagnosed formally with ADHD when he was five years old.In this book he tells the story of the next twelve years as he learns to live with both the good and bad sides of life with ADHD. Blake's memoir offers, for the first time, a young person's account of what it's like to live and grow up with this common condition. It will be an inspiration and companion to the thousands of others like him who must find a way to thrive with a different perspective than many of us. The book features an introduction by psychologist Lara Honos-Webb, author of "The Gift of ADHD" and a leading advocate for kids with ADHD.
