Gracie's Take: And last but not least, I’d like to recommend my own debut novel! Writing helps me work through my problems. Writing this book helped me process and celebrate my ADHD. I hope it helps you do the same.
The school in my book is a place where all the students have learning differences. Knowing this makes it easier for its students to communicate honestly with each other. They respect each other’s differences, and this openness creates a strong community.
Instead of labeling the characters’ learning differences or explaining their behavior, I just make it an essential piece of their descriptions so they will probably seem somewhat different from the characters you’re used to in fiction. Those of us who learn differently are indeed interesting people. I hope that comes across in the book.
Publisher’s Summary: “Welcome to Superhero School! Join Oliver, Jess, and all their friends on a mission to destroy the power-hungry, evil villains of Vork. From subterranean sewers to lush jungles, and dinosaurs to dragons, our heroes are pushed to their limits in ways they’d never imagined. Will their collective powers — flight, morphing, invisibility, mind reading, and more — be enough for them to overcome the malevolence of Vork? Or will they stumble over their own doubts and painful histories? Read this action-packed journey of friendship, hardship, and humor to find out.”
