Why We Love It: Author Stephanie Lorman doesn’t shy away from any topic — whether it's snot or white privilege — and is open about the struggles of raising children in a small house and balancing her personal self with her family life — all with a healthy dose of adult ADHD. She openly admits her life is "messy, cluttered, and a bit stressful." But reading Scattermom, you also feel her joy radiating from every word. Lorman is interesting, charming, and sure of herself — and that's inspiring for anyone, ADHD or not.
About Stephanie Lorman: Lorman is a political activist, mother of two "small people" and ready and willing to admit the disparities between her "present self" and her "other Self" — that is, who she was before she had kids. She also has ADHD, and is an outspoken advocate for women and girls (and moms) who are often underdiagnosed, underachieving, and overstressed in a neurotypical world.
A Taste: "I long for a life with everything neatly sorted into the equivalent of a 3D spreadsheet.
