Summary
Twelve-year-old Clea wants to do her homework, follow instructions, pay attention in school, and play chess on the school team, but somehow she cannot focus on whatever is in front of her, and the other kids at school are starting to notice and make fun of her; when her worried parents take her to be tested she finds out that she has ADHD (only without the hyperactivity)--and with help from the psychiatrist who seems to really understand her she is determined to learn how to focus
Summary
Diagnosed with ADHD after years of struggling through school with a mind that has difficulty focusing, Clea uses her love of chess to develop better concentration skills and block out challenging symptoms and distractions.
