I recently shared the cover art without the title or by-line for this one, because Pat wanted it available for download before promoting it. Here is the complete version of the cover, along with the link to Amazon, where you can download it to your Kindle.
It's an endearing story about two brothers, the younger of which has ADHD, and the trials and escapades the older brother goes through as a result.
Ya'll have got to read this one! It approaches a serious subject in an honest and fun manner. Great even if your child doesn't have ADHD, because odds are one of their classmates, relatives, or friends is affected by it.
Check out the dsecription on the Amazon page:
Sixth-grader Ted Cheltoni has had it with his little brother Harry. The kid can be fun, but mostly he's noisy, hyper, forgetful, rarely finishes his work at school and can't clean up his room at home.
Ted, his parents, and the school try everything from Time Out to behavior and work programs, but nothing improves Harry's behavior or work for long. Soon, Ted's parents are fighting so often about how to help Harry that Ted's afraid they'll get a divorce.
After a school trip, Harry gets suspended from both school and the bus. His parents are not happy they have to take vacation days and then transport Harry to school. That afternoon, Ted finds Harry packing to leave home to “make things easier” on Mom and Dad.
Ted can't believe it. An eight-year-old kid who thinks he’s so bad he has to run away from home? He's got to help his little brother, and fast.
HYPER HARRY, a work of fiction appropriate for kids 8-12 and reluctant readers, also provides three end pages: “10 Tips for Kids with ADHD”, “10 Tips for Parents of Kids with ADHD”, and an “Information and Support” list of helpful resources.
The author, Patricia H. Aust, has served on the Connecticut Task Force on ADHD and as Editor of its REPORT, the Board of Directors of Learning Disabilities of CT, and has worked in public schools with many kids and teens who have ADHD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A short and insightful novel for readers of all ages,
June 8, 2002
This review is from: Hyper Harry (Paperback)
Written by Patricia Aust, (a part-time school social worker and former member of the CT ADHD Task Force), Hyper Harry is a short and insightful novel for readers of all ages. Ted Cheltoni is a 12-year-old boy who finds it extremely difficult to cope with his hyperactive younger brother Harry. When Harry gets suspended from school and Ted finds Harry preparing to leave home, Ted knows he must take action quickly to help his sibling. Hyper Harry is a highly recommended addition to school and community library collections.
Until next time...
