Beata went on an international marketing tour for the book. The book series is available in 17 different languages.
Further, Beata has appeared on the Swedish television shows in Malou, discussing her ADHD, OCD history, and dealing with bullying as a teenager. She then performed an original song called "Bara Du Vill," while wearing a dress that was emblazoned with one of the book's superheroes.
Thunberg continues to appear on TV, performing her single at various concerts and promoting the book with Våhlund. Beata will appear alongside her mother in a Stockholm musical in January 2021.

Further, Malena writes that Beata is prone to unpredictable outbursts of anger where she screams obscenities at her mother. In one instance, she called her mom “a horrible devil” and threw DVD cases at her.
Beata’s OCD causes her to insist on walking with her left foot in front, refuse to step on certain parts of the sidewalk, and demand that her mother walk the same way. She used to insist that her mother wait outside while she was in class at school, demanding she not to move at all.
In Scenes From the Heart, Malena concludes that Beata and Greta’s disorders are “not a handicap” but a “superpower.”
