Review by Koalagirl

This book seemed to be written about a kid just like me. I totallly identify with the main character. I think you will like this book, if you can see the humor and truth to what having an ADHD brain is like, sometimes.

Review by EIT2013

Most of it was about running in track. Other wise I liked most of the other things and the races

Review by ANP1123

Sidetracked is a hysterical book about a middle schooler who has ADHD and about his life on the cross country team. It's good, but the end of the final race in the book is something you would predict. Overall, though, it's a great book.

very good book

Review by ChanaPJL

I think these book is pretty good, but it took a long time for me to get interested into it and finish it. I suggest this book to people who have a lot of time to read it.
