As of January 2007, Adora is completing her first full-length novel, Yang in Disguise, serving as a spokesperson for Verizon Reads campaign for literacy, and editing a novella, "The Pickpocket Princess". She has now finished her second book, Dancing Fingers — which her older sister Adrianna, who is a musician, helped write. In January 2009 she appeared in a Channel 4 documentary, The World's Cleverest Child and Me, presented by Mark Dolan.
Professor Joan Freeman, psychologist and author of How to Raise A Bright Child, believes "There's a big difference between a gifted child and a gifted adult. All a child has to do is be advanced for their age. An adult has to push the frontiers of knowledge."
"Currently, Adora loves what she does and gets glory and praise. Problems may arise when she hits adolescence. You can't work as hard as she does whilst also giggling with girlfriends, hanging out with boys, stomping around and slamming doors. Life could get very difficult."
In February 2010, Adora spoke at the TED Conference, saying the world needs "childish" thinking: bold ideas, wild creativity and especially optimism. Kids' big dreams deserve high expectations, she says, starting with grownups' willingness to learn from children as much as to teach.
On October 19, 2010, Adora spoke to the faculty and students of Full Sail University, on creativity in the classroom.
