I’m Leia. I’m nine and in the fourth grade. I wrote this book because when I found out I am dyslexic, I thought there was something wrong with me, and there isn’t. I don’t want other kids to think like I did. “Dys” in Greek means difficulty, and “lexis” means words in Greek, so all it really means is that a person has a hard time with anything that has to do with words, but it doesn’t mean we aren’t smart! I also want to change a few things that I learned, like dyslexia is a learning disability. Why? It should be called a learning style because that’s what it is! I feel bad because they think they are different, but really we are all different types of learners. We all need to be dyslexic renegades and help people understand what we need to be successful.
