Nike is a 7-year-old, touching and wise young girl. She has to take Ritalin at home and at school, due to an ADHD diagnosis. If she could decide for herself, she would quit these pills immediately, because Nike doesn't want to be different from her friends. 'Except for when someone gets her finger stuck between doors, then I do like to be a different person!' And the pills taste awful, that's another reason.
But a child cannot make her own decisions. That's what parents do.
Because she really insists on it, Nike is allowed to go to school without Ritalin for one day. She's hoping to show that she can do without it. Will that help to convince her parents?
