A Walk in the Life of a Dyslexic Teen

Living "Lexi." A Walk in the Life of a Dyslexic Teen, written by Shelley Trammel and her daughter, who is dyslexic, takes the reader through the challenges and victories of a teenage girl with dyslexia.

Written in first person, Isabella describes her disbelief at not passing tests when she studied and studied, her frustration with feeling "less than normal," the strategies she uses to compensate in her daily life, and finally how she embraces her learning differences with the support of good friends and loving parents.

A quick read, Living Lexi, offers humorous insight for anyone with a pre-teen or teenage child with dyslexia.
