Dyslexia-Escaping The Forest: A Child’s View Lost in the Trees, Rhona Macdonald

Rhona grows up with her collected labels of being lazy and immature. She spends her unhappy days, re-doing work, dreading reading sessions, dreaming of escaping it all. She is lost, she does not understand why her efforts results in poor marks, cementing her place in the retard class. She falls further behind in Primary School with a bully of a teacher and her self-esteem is rock bottom. Rhona skilfully develops ingenious strategies and is forever adapting to accommodate the latest challenge. Survival is a daily task. A broken limb and a change of school provides relief. Rhona’s Secondary School English teacher looks beyond the trees of the pre-existing labels and sees the complete view. She sees a bright child with dyslexia and gently shows Rhona a way out of the forest. Rhona still battles with trust and luck and needs all her resourcefulness and determination, but the path looks like it could lead out and so Rhona’s life begins to have hope and a possible future.

If you are a reader who is looking to read a memoir that is unlike anything you have read before and a memoir that is the perfect combination of inspiration, fact, and poignancy then Dyslexia-Escaping The Forest is the book for you and should not be missed.

Dyslexia-Escaping The Forest is written by the incredible Rhona Macdonald, and in her book, she shares her story and the many pivotal moments in it. The reader will follow her from her youth to adulthood, and in her book, Rhona tells the journey she has faced with Dyslexia. Rhona is very open and honest throughout her book, and she shares the labels she collected as a child, such as ‘immature’ and lazy’ and is very honest about the fact that she was unhappy and lost. However, Rhona’s story starts to take a happier turn when she starts a new secondary school, and it is here that she meets a teacher that understands Dyslexia and also looks beyond the ‘pre-existing labels and sees the complete view,’ and this book lovers is the premise of the incredible Dyslexia-Escaping The Forest!

Dyslexia-Escaping The Forest is an influential, powerful book because it deals with the topic of Dyslexia. I believe that Dyslexia-Escaping The Forest will be the perfect read for those that have Dyslexia or know somebody who has because although Macdonald is honest about how she felt, she still manages to inspire and inject positivity into the story which will give others hope. However, those that have not been touched by Dyslexia in some way will equally be able to enjoy the book and take away something from it thanks to the author’s wisdom and bright outlook on life.

Dyslexia-Escaping The Forest is an excellent book not only for the author’s candor but also the information she has so expertly laced throughout the book. The information will help readers better understand Dyslexia and so much more and I believe that is really important because sadly this topic is not commonly discussed, but they need to be so that no person ever feels alone and can get help when they need to.

Rhona Macdonald is a remarkable person for two reasons; the first is because she is honest and brave to write her story, and the second is because she is an exceptionally talented author. Her impeccable writing is a joy to read and flows beautifully throughout so that the reader will feel compelled to read non-stop.
