A wonderfully raw emotional look at a very real mother raising a challenging child in a world that really does not always understand or accept. Its as much of a story of the growth of the mother as it is of the growth of the child. But this is not your typical memoir. For every bit of tough stuff and learning there is ten times as much laughing and love.

What a great book. We have a grandchild with add and loved reading the tales of Clark Kent. Pamela Hutchins has such a knack for writing. I alternated laughing and crying at the joys and problems of raising a child with special needs. Pamela is a hands on mom who admits to the struggles and challenges of dealing with her son but we also see a mother who would do anything to see that her child gets the attention and accommodations at school that he deserves.

Raising challenging, and challenged kids, can be frustrating, difficult and tiring. It can make you feel like you are alone in the world, that no-one truly understands you or your child. Well you are not alone, people do understand. This book looks at real life through a wonderful perspective that says "my child is wonderful, and special and even though I would like to strangle him/her sometimes, life really is good". The book, through the tales of the author, lets you participate in things that worked, and things that didn't. It is wonderfully written, easy to read and a real hoot.

This book was great. It was full of hilarious anecdotes- from lacrosse gloves to lawnmowers, there were endless stories to keep me laughing. The author does a really good job with balancing all the perks and pains of having an ADHD wonderkid. It shows all the funny, sweet, irritating, hilarious, endearing, and downright crazy things you can learn to love and expect. I couldn't stop reading it once I started! I highly recommend it for anyone with kids, friends, or loved ones that have ADHD.
