Waiting on Wednesday: Counting to D

Counting to D

PD: 2.11.14 by Elliot Books 
Book Summary: 
The kids at Sam’s school never knew if they should make fun of her for being too smart or too dumb. That’s what it means to be dyslexic, smart, and illiterate. Sam is sick of it. So when her mom gets a job in a faraway city, Sam decides not to tell anyone about her little illiteracy problem. Without her paradox of a reputation, she falls in with a new group of highly competitive friends who call themselves the Brain Trust. When she meets Nate, her charming valedictorian lab partner, she declares her new reality perfect. But in order to keep it that way, she has to keep her learning disability a secret. The books are stacked against her and so are the lies. Sam’s got to get the grades, get the guy, and get it straight—without being able to read

I have read a lot of books about kids with disabilities. This is the second book I have found to be written about a teenager with dyslexia aside from the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan so I am interested in how it is written.
