Book review – very readable book for girls

A helpful book, well designed to be read by a teen with ADHD. Girl’s Guide is a light and easy read with quizzes, helpful tips, fun facts and lots of illustrations.

The book’s focus is on what is it like for girls to have ADHD: how adolescence affects ADHD, how ADHD affects emotions, friendships, interest and work. Full of explanatory facts and practical advice on how to life a full and successful life, it covers counselling, medication and coaching too. The book is full of suggestions on how to cope with school and homework, and advice on relating to teachers, family and friends.

Stories of three different girls with ADHD are used to help connect the information with the reader. One of only a handful of books for teens, it is a very helpful and useful guide.
