A writer diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD as a child explores the toll the system takes on kids who are not "normal" and advocates for a revolution in the way society thinks about diversity, abilities, and disabilities.
Mooney was a neuro-diverse kid diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD who didn't learn to read until he was twelve. The realization that he wasn't the problem-- the system and the concept of normal were-- saved Mooney's life and fundamentally changed his outlook. Here he explores the toll that being not normal takes on kids and adults when they're trapped in environments that label them, shame them, and tell them that they are the problem. He argues that if we can reorient the ways in which we think about diversity, abilities, and disabilities, we can start a revolution. -- adapted from jacket
