Eliza has trouble sticking to things. She wants to take a cake baking class but her parents say it's too expensive: she has to prove first that she has the power to stay with something. When Eliza takes her brother's spot in his Taekwondo class, she gets her chance to do just that. It isn't easy though, and she's often tempted to just drop out. An unlikely friendship with Madison, who seems to take so easily to the martial arts, helps to change Lexie's attitude and give her the stick-to-it-ness that she usually can't muster. With breezy, engaging dialog, this would be a great read aloud in a class, especially given that so many students who also have ADHD face exactly what Lexie faced. ( )
