Diary of a Dyslexic School Kid
Experience day-to-day life for a dyslexic kid, including school life, bullying and coping with tests and homework, in this frank and funny diary.
Co-authored with a teenage boy with dyslexia and illustrated with cartoons, this is a positive yet honest look at the difficulties of being dyslexic. Using a simple and relatable approach, the authors display the ups and downs of school - and home - life with a reading difficulty, focussing on the sometimes overwhelming experience of being at a bigger school and studying loads of new subjects.
Providing tips for what really helps and works based on real-life experience, this fun, accessible book shows teens and tweens with dyslexia that they are far from alone in their experiences.

I could really relate to this. I really liked the images and some of it made me laugh. This would be good for anyone with dyslexia because it is so relatable and shows them that they are not the only one.

I like the style of this, I like that it's a diary because this makes it easier to read. The font is nice and big and easy to read. It's just amazing (like yoda).
