Hannah Edwards has a lot on her mind.
For starters, her father—the Canola King—has been missing for months. And no one—not her distracted mother, her meddlesome guidance counselor, or her evil Uncle Fergus—seems to care. Luckily, she has her secret journal to keep her focused and her best friend Sam Castillo for support in solving the case.

So when Sam tells Hannah he thinks he saw her father’s ghost down at the old Riverway Mill, Hannah decides to take matters into her own hands. She soon learns that Uncle Fergus has a plan to steal the family farm, drain the river, and find a hidden treasure.

On the edge of going from being a GOOD KID to a BAD KID, Hannah stops pretending to pay attention to her endlessly boring classes. With Sam, her secret journal, and eventually a whole lot of Riverway frogs, Hannah sets out to solve the mystery of her father's disappearance.

Hannah Edwards is a heartfelt story of a young neurodiverse girl with a whole lot of determination to do the right thing.

Early Review:

Hannah Edwards is the best book I’ve seen that authentically and comprehensively illustrates the experience of ADHD in girls, which presents itself differently from boys, and often goes undiagnosed.”
–Tori Kelley, Ph.D., President and Founder of Central Florida Mental Health
