About the Author
Aidan Colvin prefers button downs to muscle-tees, White Collar over The Walking Dead, driving a Mini Cooper over his mother’s minivan, and the color blue. He likes dogs more than cats, Sourpatch kids over Reece’s peanut butter cups, rowing over running, and thinks short people get a bad wrap. After you put down this book, he encourages you to listen to the song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” because you know what? Through this project, he’s found that dreams do come true. Liisa Ogburn, AKA “Mom,” prefers summer to winter, a night in to a night out, a game of Hearts over Call of Duty, and the color tangerine. She has a wicked sweet tooth, takes pictures at inopportune moments, often says “What’s the worst thing that could happen?” right before something bad does happen, and sometimes breaks into yodeling during her daughters’ carpool. Through this project, she learned that sometimes the best thing you can do is shoot for the moon. Why not? You might land a lot closer than you can ever imagine.

Aidan's story is very similar to my daughter's story, and they encountered many of the same challenges - a public school system that wasn't educated in dyslexia, speciality private schools at significant cost, and the power of believing in oneself. A friend of my daughter's recommended this to her and she passed it along to her dad and me. We both read it today, in one sitting (each). I cried most of the way through because it felt really personal to me, but this is not a sad story - it is a triumphant one!
I also agree with the references mentioned in the book - particularly those of Dr. Sally Shaywitz (both her book, Overcoming Dyslexia, and Yale's Center for Dyslexia and Creativity) and of the Orton-Gillingham method.
