by LiamCreed (Author)

Synopsis

Liam Creed seemed like a lost cause. He was excluded from school more times than he can remember, his outbursts got him into trouble, he faced a constant struggle with medication, and his family were driven to despair. All because he was born with an inability to sit still and concentrate: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Liam thought his life was destined for failure. Until, one life-changing day, he met a mischievous bundle of energy called Aero. Aero and Liam developed a special bond. As Liam struggled to train the mischievous dog, for once he didn't feel useless and afflicted. Against the odds, Liam made an inspirational breakthrough in his own condition and learned to believe in the future.

Author Bio
Liam Creed is a 15-year-old ADHD sufferer living in Chichester. At the age of eight he was finally diagnosed with ADHD, and has been on medication ever since. When his school put him forward as a volunteer at Canine Partners -- as featured in the BBC documentary In The Dog House -- Liam found his true calling, realizing that he has a rapport with dogs generally and a special bond with one in particular. The experience changed his outlook forever and he is now training to be a trainer at Canine Partners.
