A hilarious and heartrending account of one mother´s journey to understand and reconnect with her high-spirited preteen son - a true story sure to beguile parents grappling with a child´s bewildering behavior. Popular literature is filled with the stories of self-sacrificing mothers bravely tending to their challenging children. Katherine Ellison offers a different kind of tale. Shortly after Ellison, an award-winning investigative reporter, and her twelve-year-old son, Buzz, were both diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, she found herself making such a hash of parenting that the two of them faced three alternatives: He´d go to boarding school; she´d go AWOL; or they´d make it their full-time job to work out their problems together. They decided to search for a solution while Ellison investigated what genuine relief, if any, might be found in the confusing array of goods sold by the modern mental health industry. The number of diagnoses for childhood attention and behavior issues is exploding, leaving parents and educators on a confusing chase to find the best kind of help for each child. Buzz, a pause-resistor of a memoir, brings much relief. It is immensely engaging, laugh-out-loud funny, and honest-and packed with helpful insights. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katherine Ellison.

It´s rodeo time on Terul - bronco riding, yertl tripping, dragon team roping, korth barrel racing, and dragon riding. (And if you thought bullriding was dangerous, just take a look at dragon riding at Kerluk.) These are the events at the very first rodeo on planet Terul since the revival of the Intergalactic Rodeo Association. And Buck Johnson, Skeeter Evans, and Snort Jones are entered - using, of course, Buck´s money to pay their entry fees. Buck´s nearly broke again after paying his and Snort´s and Skeeters´ entry fees. So, in order to get off Terul and find an easier life, they´ll have to cowboy up and win some money. Still, if they hit a good lick, they can finally get off this sorry planet. But as every rodeo cowboy knows, a lot can go wrong before the final buzzer sounds and the last flag drops. It ain´t over till the secretary signs the checks. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ty Hunt.
