I liked this book. I found it strange at times, but then realized that there is a lot about OCD that I don't understand. Good book - both entertaining (in that reading kind of way) and educational.

A realistic portrait of a girl living with obsessive compulsive disorder. A good read.

I read this book in middle school and have searched high and low for another copy so I could re-read it. This book makes the struggle of living with OCD much more relatable.

I am studying to be a cognitive behavioral therapist and found this book tremendously insightful into the mind of a girl suffering with OCD. The sense of humor incoporated into the mix helped lighten the seriousness of the subject. I couldn't put it and down and upon completion, wished the book was even longer.

The love story at the end developed a little too fast for my taste. However, I particularly enjoyed reading the interaction between Tara and Sam when Sam was the one falling victim to his OCD. It was sweet to see how they were both able to strengthen the other, albeit experiencing different types of OCD.

Overall, a highly recommended read to all- sufferers and non-sufferers alike.
