ADHD is one of the most common neurological diagnoses in the U.S.

—yet a staggering 75% of girls and women remain undiagnosed. 

A lot of ADHD women think they’re broken because they live outside the status quo. They’re not trying to fit a square peg into a round hole… they’re asking, why the damn hole needs filling in the first place?!

I’m not here to make you like everyone else. 

I’m here to teach you how to work with your brilliant brain, so you can do things your own way and live the life you were meant to live.

Most people have been led to believe that ADHD looks like a 9-year-old boy who can’t sit still. 

But most people are wrong…

Due to the gender gap in medical research that perpetuates these myths, many ADHD women are left to navigate a society that fails to understand their struggles and gifts.

“ADHD looks different in everyone—one reason it’s difficult to diagnose.”



Katherine Ellison, Pulitzer Prize Winner, author of Buzz: A Year of Paying Attention

Tracy Otsuka’s sparkling, smart-ass positivity pours over these pages, powerful enough to lift the lowest self-esteem.
