Launch of Understanding Molly
In this new YA novel, Molly – with a bit of help from friends and fam – comes to terms with her ADHD. Book signings & free refreshments!
‘Imagine being trapped on a swing during a windstorm. Your anger and frustration propels you back and forth. Faster and faster. You want to get off, but you’re not strong enough, big enough or quick enough. Holding on becomes impossible, draining you of any energy you have left.’ These are all emotions young Molly feels — and more — as she tries to navigate her way as a middle child with ADHD (Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) and ODD (Oppositional Defiance Disorder). Her emotions often get the better of her, much to the dismay of her parents, siblings, teachers and friends, but she’s determined to find a way to master her negative impulses.
Her journey is complicated, with several false starts and roundabouts.
At times, it all seems too difficult. Will her determination be enough to get her there?

Not so long ago, Kelly-Anne Norman followed her best friend’s advice to pursue her dream of writing her very own book. This definitely didn’t come easy; in fact, it was a lot trickier than she ever imagined, but Kelly never gave up. Did we mention that Kelly is also really stubborn and persistent? Sometimes that can definitely be a good thing!
Understanding Molly is Kelly’s first novel. Through writing it, she realised that she had a wonderful opportunity to give a voice to those who sometimes struggle to find their own. She believes that books have the power to create change, and, if her novel can change even one person’s perceptions, then Kelly feels that she has achieved that goal.
