books for kids

I am reading books on ADD/ADHD/Executive functioning, one of which is the series Smart but Scattered. I have the teen one that I gave my 12 yr old to read to see if it would be helpful for her. I am reading the younger one and I can only read so many books at one time. She doesn't like it because it's not written **to her**, it's written to the parent. Does anyone know if there are books out there that are written to *the kids* on what they can do and things they can work on in regards to executive function/add/adhd?

This probably isn't exactly what you are thinking of, but the Percy Jackson series is fantastic. It's fiction, specifically modern fantasy, but it's about kids with ADHD and dyslexia. If I'd had that, plus a diagnosis, at age 12, well, things would have been a whole lot easier.


Also: "You mean I'm not lazy, crazy or stupid?" is a classic. It's aimed at adult women, not children, but if she's a decent reader, it should be fine for a 12-year-old.


Thanks. I'll take a look at this one.
