Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Win A Copy of Buzz: A Year of Paying Attention

No comments

In our Reviews section this month, we cover Katherine Ellison's new memoir, Buzz: A Year of Paying Attention:

Ellison's twelve-year-old son (and the wayward, willful child of the story) has been diagnosed with both attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and oppositional defiant disorder -- ADHD and ODD. This diagnostic alphabet soup means he's clinically distracted and a pain in the neck.

We have an extra copy of Buzz to give to one of our readers. Leave a comment on our review page for your chance to win!
