A great book about the realities of living with OCD
This is another great book about mental health in teens and I enjoyed reading Daniel’s story. It shows how terrible it is for someone dealing with OCD. I enjoyed Daniel’s interactions with his best friend, Garret, and with his therapist. Holland writes in such a realistic, believable way and I’m sure many people suffering from OCD will feel heard and understood after reading this story. The portrayal of Daniel’s girlfriend leaving him after his breakdown at school demonstrates the reality that many people will leave you during your worst times, but Daniel’s strength is an inspiration when he realized his own value regardless of other people’s feelings about him. Another great story by this author and I hope she’ll write more!
