A mother and son navigate ADHD together: ';A story of love and persistence ... Buzz will teach, charm, and bolster you.' Edward Hallowell, MD, author of Driven to Distraction We've all heard the stories of self-sacrificing mothers bravely tending to their challenging children. Katherine Ellison offers a different kind of tale. Shortly after Ellison, a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter, and her high-spirited twelve-year-old son, Buzz, were both diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, she found herself making such a hash of parenting that the two of them faced three alternatives: he'd go to boarding school; she'd go AWOL; or they'd make it their full-time job to work out their problems together. They chose option number three and proceeded into the confusing world of the modern mental health industryand she recounts the story, along with some helpful insights, in this ';funny, well-written memoir' (Booklist). ';Combining a mother's ferocious love with an investigative journalist's curiosity and rigor, Katherine Ellison holds a magnifying glass up to her young son, her family history, and perhaps most of all, to herself ... a powerful storyraw, brave, honest, smart, and ultimately redemptive.' Dani Shapiro, New York Times-bestselling author of Inheritance ';Absorbing, sharply observed.' Kirkus Reviews
