Lost Inside My Head72
Vincent has a huge house in his head. It has an entrance, a living room, dark rooms, a light room, a space room and a control room. Vincent spends a lot of time in the control room trying to figure out how it all works, but with its thousands of flashing lights, buttons, levers and blinking screens, it can be total chaos—how is he supposed to know where to look?
At school, when he tries to recite a fable in front of his class, he blows it. Even though he knows it by heart, not a single syllable comes to mind. Vincent feels like a misfit when people tell him to just concentrate, and he often has trouble in school. He can't seem to think, but he also can't stop thinking. Sometimes he wants to escape his own head and just be like everyone else. But maybe Vincent doesn't have to be the same as everyone else after all. Maybe he just has to learn how to look, to find the light room and see things in his own way.
Inspired by the author's experience growing up with ADHD, Lost Inside My Head is a touching and illuminating story that brings the reader into the thoughts, struggles, joys and uniqueness of a young child with ADHD.
