( There Must Be a Way: A Life of Distraction, a new book by Murphy van Benschoten, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

There Must Be a Way is Murphy van Benschoten's story of living with undiagnosed ADHD. Being constantly labeled negatively, van Benschoten shines a light onto a life with ADHD and how you can still strive to succeed in all you set out to do.

Throughout her life, van Benschoten struggled with concentrating, in school, at work, and as an adult performing routine errands like hosting a family dinner and going to the grocery store. Using humor and raw emotion, she places on the page the everyday life of a person with ADHD, and her journey to diagnosis and management. Through her engaging story, anyone with ADHD or without will find great value in her journey and become more aware of the struggles and triumphs those with ADHD face every day.
