Publisher Description

“Abby’s funny and engaging first-person narrative recalls the tone of Jeff Kinney’s Wimpy Kid and Rachel Renee Russell’s Dork Diaries, and the ultimate message—friends can help bring out the best in someone—is heartwarming.” —Booklist
 
Fans of Joey Pigza, Meg Cabot, and Because of Mr. Terupt will root for hilarious, one-of-a-kind Abby as she navigates ADHD, middle school, family, and friendships.
 
Abby was born for the spotlight. Now it’s her time to shine!
 
Abby is twice exceptional—she is gifted in math and science, and she has ADHD. Normally, she has everything pretty much under control. But when Abby makes one HUGE mistake that leads to “The Night That Ruined My Life,” or “TNTRML,” she lands in summer school.

Abby thinks the other summer-school kids are going to be total weirdos. And what with her parents’ new rules, plus all the fuss over her brother’s bar mitzvah, her life is turning into a complete disaster. But as Abby learns to communicate better and finds friends who love her for who she is, she discovers that her biggest weaknesses could be her greatest assets.

Hilarious and heartwarming, This Is Not the Abby Show is for everyone who knows that standing out is way more fun than blending in.

“Like Jack Gantos’s Joey Pigza books, this lively novel from Fischer offers a firsthand view of life with ADHD.” —Publishers Weekly

“A captivating portrayal of one girl’s experiences with ADHD. . . . Fischer’s spunky and introspective protagonist offers a sympathetic mirror for many kids, both boys and girls.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The characters are likable and fun to follow from start to finish, and their growth rings true. The author does a great job of shining some light on ADHD and how it can affect people differently.” —School Library Journal
