My Thirteenth Winter: A Memoir by Samantha Abeel

In this beautiful and chilling memoir, twenty-five-year-old Samantha Abeel describes her struggles with a math-related learning disability, and how it forced her to find inner strength and courage. Samantha Abeel couldn't tell time, remember her locker combination, or count out change at a checkout counter -- and she was in seventh grade. For a straight-A student like Saman In this beautiful and chilling memoir, twenty-five-year-old Samantha Abeel describes her struggles with a math-related learning disability, and how it forced her to find inner strength and courage. Samantha Abeel couldn't tell time, remember her locker combination, or count out change at a checkout counter -- and she was in seventh grade. For a straight-A student like Samantha, problems like these made no sense. She dreaded school, and began having anxiety attacks. In her thirteenth winter, she found the courage to confront her problems -- and was diagnosed with a learning disability. Slowly, Samantha's life began to change again. She discovered that she was stronger than she'd ever thought possible -- and that sometimes, when things look bleakest, hope is closer than you think.

I received a free digital copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

“You know what’s annoying? When a brain that wants to skip around from idea to idea without pause or direction, that refuses to even think about venues without shutting down, when that brain sits down on the one thing I don’t want to think about and won’t let go.” - Patricia Burroughs, Revenge of the Killer Flamingos

Where to begin? Burroughs has, I believed done something brand new in a novel. While I haven't done the research, I suspect that this is the first time an author has crafted a heroine with dyscalculia. Briefly defined, it means a person can't do math, as do all learning disabilities it affects one's life more broadly than that. Because I also have dyscalculia, I know how it can make one feel. MJ also has ADHD which I don't have. The author includes a note at the end where she speaks candidly of

This is only the second time I have given a rating to a book I wrote. The first one was my first book, my first baby, when I listed it on Goodreads I gave it out of affection and pride because it had been a turning point in my life.

Revenge of the Killer Flamingos is also a turning point in my life, and a very personal one, at that. As an #ownvoices book, books about diverse characters written by authors from that same diverse group, it reveals a bit of the inner workings of my brain. As someone

Revenge of the Killer Flamingos, told in first person from only the main character MJ’s point of view, reflects dys-brain well. What seems all over the map at first glance is really a tightly drawn classic murder mystery that allows the reader to solve the case along with the detective. The humor is occasionally laugh-out-loud, with lots of intermittent giggles. The entire book is slightly crazy, but oh so perfect. While first person can be limiting – you only ever know what one character is thi

Who knew that flamingos can be deadly?

The Mathematical Brain by Brian Butterworth

Synopsis The concept of numbers and the ability to recognize and process them is innate, part of everyone's intellectual apparatus whether they've had formal education or not. This "number instinct" is not dependent on basic intelligence or general knowledge, a fact which has implications for neuroscience and poses the question: why did man evolve with such specialized neur Synopsis The concept of numbers and the ability to recognize and process them is innate, part of everyone's intellectual apparatus whether they've had formal education or not. This "number instinct" is not dependent on basic intelligence or general knowledge, a fact which has implications for neuroscience and poses the question: why did man evolve with such specialized neural apparatus. It has been that the social development of humans has been crucially affected by language, yet numbers have also been critical in the advancement of human culture. Every child goes through a stage of learning to count using their ten fingers, much as early Homo Sapiens must have done. If number learning is a natural and universal function of the brain, why do so many suffer from dyscalculia? This text, containing theories and anecdote, is an investigation into the bizarre world of numbers. It examines the role of education, good or bad, in the development of mathematical disorders.

The Absolute Value of Mike by Kathryn Erskine

Mike tries so hard to please his father, but the only language his dad seems to speak is calculus. And for a boy with a math learning disability, nothing could be more difficult. When his dad sends him to live with distant relatives in rural Pennsylvania for the summer to work on an engineering project, Mike figures this is his big chance to buckle down and prove himself. Mike tries so hard to please his father, but the only language his dad seems to speak is calculus. And for a boy with a math learning disability, nothing could be more difficult. When his dad sends him to live with distant relatives in rural Pennsylvania for the summer to work on an engineering project, Mike figures this is his big chance to buckle down and prove himself. But when he gets there, nothing is what he thought it would be. The project has nothing at all to do with engineering, and he finds himself working alongside his wacky eighty-something- year-old aunt, a homeless man, and a punk rock girl as part of a town-wide project to adopt a boy from Romania. Mike may not learn anything about engineering, but what he does learn is far more valuable.

It Just Doesn't Add Up: Explaining Dyscalculia and Overcoming Number Problems for Children and Adults by Paul Moorcraft

For anyone worried about their numeracy (and the book also deals with often related conditions such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and attention deficit disorders), this could be a life-saver. Dr Moorcraft minted the campaign slogan: 'Just because you can't count doesn't mean you don't count'. This often humorous book will help your pupils, your children or yourselves to count properly in school, in your careers and throughout your social life.
