At Made By Dyslexia, our mission is to teach the world to understand the brilliance and value of Dyslexic Thinking, and to empower it in every home, every workplace, and every school. Jenny is now conflicted over where to place her loyalty, and equally at odds over what she has become. I also like the strong context of 2016 with THAT looming election which is woven cleverly into the storytelling. So, he impulsively stops taking his bipolar medicine with the hopes that the great idea will come to him more freely this way.

WORLD’S WORST CHILDREN 2, which published in early 2017, spent four weeks at industry number one and eight weeks at the top of the children’s chart. As the Goodreads synopsis notes you can also tell how very familiar our author is with the setting, feeling as if you are there.

The men are less likeable than the women as some are certainly narcissistic although whilst Adam is judgy, he is also amusing in his non pc world and is also charismatic.

His house, located deep in the Wellfleet Woods, was littered with scraps of paper covered with his fastidious penmanship. I loved Adrienne Brodeur's memoir, Wild Game, and Little Monsters, her new novel, has that same raw authenticity. Cowley Heller, who inflicted multiple highly descriptive scenes of child sexual assault on me, has not demonstrated an ability to do that.

Abby and Ken were close when they were growing up until something happened that changed their relationship and it had remained somewhat distant ever since. I thank Simon and Schuster and its imprint, Avid Reader Press, for allowing me to be an early reader in exchange for an honest review. There’s a true interpretation, perhaps—Abby has certainly intended the painting as a gift to her father both to reveal her pregnancy and to bring a dark chapter from her childhood into the light, but those are far from the only things the others perceive in her work. With clear allusions to the biblical tale of Cain and Abel, this is a narrative that I highly recommend you experience for yourself.The new doctor acknowledged Adam only cursorily, opting to study his electronic patient chart first—mistake number one. I suppose I did like Abby, and I hope motherhood brings more happiness and genuine love into her life. His parenting style combined benign neglect with instruction in the flora and fauna of the Cape, punctuated by disappearances when he went off his bipolar meds and/or fell in love again. As Adam grows more attuned to the frequencies of the deep sea and less so to the people around him, Ken and Abby each plan the elaborate gifts they will present to their father on his birthday, jostling for primacy in this small family unit. The non-linear narrative is an effective structure, forcing the reader to put together the pieces of this familial puzzle.

Ken was insufferable, Adam was frustrating, Jenny had glimpses of goodness but was inconsistent, David was OK.That others found his ingenuity threatening was not his problem; perhaps they should be the ones consuming mood-regulating drugs.
