In addition, an aunt shared how the book affected her nephew who has ADHD.
During a recent trip to visit family, she took her copy of the book with her. The eight year-old nephew asked to read it, which in itself surprised her. Moreover, he read it in one day!
The aunt was curious whether he retained much from the story so she asked him what he thought about it. He replied he loved it and would like his own copy to read again.

For many people these statements will make no sense. And, that is okay. For others they will understand how I really was just doing my part.
And so it goes~
