it was amazing

Martin has been diagnosed with ADHD and prescribed medication for a problem he doesn't have. He doesn't take it, and nothing helps, until he meets a boy named Stick who has less than he does, but Stick also has so much more. Stick is a parkour Expert who envies Martin his family. But Martin envies the easy acceptance Stick gets from his foster mom. This beautiful book takes you through Martin's misdiagnosis, walks you through his self-made workarounds for his dyslexia and then off to a wonderful place where he can make films, flip and be who he is AND have his parents not thinking he's lazy and undisciplined. He has a learning disability. But he's certainly not stupid. A wonderful, realistic book about kids with real life problems, and a happy resolution. I enjoyed every page, and then I shared it with my 10 year old, who read it in one night. His comment -- "I loved it." So did I.
