Focused by Alyson Gerber

Review by Rhea Bhatia

Focused is a novel that takes you along a journey with Clea. Clea is a middle school student who has ADHD, and had never known about ADHD until middle school. She could not accept it at first. She tried her best to make schedules and specific time periods to work, but at first it was hard to do. After a few weeks spent working with her guidance counselors, she found her voice and was able to tell her teachers what she needed, like a quiet place to work. She’d figured it out! All she needed was help and support from her friends, family, and teachers. This book is an encouraging read for kids struggling with the realization that they have an ADHD diagnosis.
