Defiantly one of the sweeter, simpler (and shorter yay! Lol) stories on the list. Eliza has problems focusing, like her dad. So when her mind speeds up and jumps from place to place it creates difficulty. She promises her parents to stick with a martial arts class. Learns that she likes the discipline of the class. Learns a bit a Korean too. I thought it was very good at diving into her thoughts ....how it can just move. And when you look up; everyone is looking at you. Slightly cringe worthy some of the things she does, however she is also a very sympathetic character. Her parents are a good support team. Mainly shows how having ADHD is not an excuse. More and more young people are being affected by this very real problem. Even thou she is very young (11 years old!), she is still relatable. Lets you listen to her mind and see her feelings.
