What People Are Saying


This is an OUTSTANDING book that every parent should get to better understand dyslexia. And they should share the wonderful advice contained in those letters from famous dyslexics with their own child with dyslexia. So inspiring!!! Aiden also does a great job sharing his day-to-day frustrations and struggles caused by his dyslexia, and how this advice helped him understand what it takes to be successful. – Susan Barton, Founder Barton Language


Congratulations, Aidan. You’re an inspiring story.  Looking forward is what works. – Writer John Irving


This book is so hopeful – the author Aidan is the real hero. The writing is sweet and the message is simple. It is heartbreaking and heart warming. A must read for families of dyslexics and everyone else!        – Goldie


Aidan is a soulful, funny and intelligent young man. I’m hopeful and inspired as the mom of a dyslexic boy, and just completely blown away by his first effort at expressing himself in words. Share this book with other young adults, parents or educators who may not know about it.          – Ellen Amarnek


More than inspiration for young people with learning differences, this little gem of a book also provides a glimpse into a quirky, loving family caring for Aidan’s dying grandfather. I cried and laughed my way through Looking for Heroes in nearly one sitting. I highly recommend this book for young people (and their families, teaches and peers) coping with dyslexia or any other challenge. Aidan has demonstrated that endurance, creativity, humor, and asking for help are what matter in life.                                             –   Liz Schwarte


This story is so moving! Definitely a 5 star book!!       –   Rosa Huffman


Fabulous Book – totally enjoyed it! I highly recommend this book to those struggling with dyslexia and those that love them too. So encouraging! I’m going to promote it with my dyslexic students. Couldn’t recommend more!        –    C. Lim


I love this story of grit and perseverance and coming to terms with any challenge life throws our way. This is a must-read for all kids and parents of kids who struggle with dyslexia. It would also appeal to anyone navigating a disappointment or challenge in life – all of us!    –   Tricia Wilson
