Do You Have ADHD? You Are Not Alone!

If you have ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), you already know that sometimes, everyday life seems like it’s too much to handle. And probably you’ve already experienced the fact that when you’re already overwhelmed, peer pressure seems to compound any situation. The Trouble With Peer Pressure is a friendly, practical guide to help you navigate the challenges of peer pressure. Author Darlene R. Wood provides information you can use, including ways to think about the consequences of your actions, and strategies to feel less isolated by the label of ADHD. You may feel that figuring out how to deal with peer pressure is hard—but guess what? It doesn’t have to be. Like any other issue, it just requires that everyone step back, evaluate, and design a thoughtful and respectful solution. The Trouble With Peer Pressure is a valuable resource for you and your family that will make life easier for you, both in school and at home.

This is a handy little book for teens with ADHD trying to come to terms with the difficulties in their life caused as a consequence of having ADHD. It is a short book that can be read in one sitting and covers difficulties such as fitting in with peers, problems with behaviour and getting in trouble with the authorities.
The main theme throughout the book is wanting to fit in and the difficulty of living with a label. This is a great book for teens who are looking to gain some understanding of the way they are feeling. The author has written this book based on the experience of her son who lives with ADHD. My only criticism of the book would be that I think the cover needs to perhaps be a little more grown up looking for the target age group.
