WOW! This is a great book. It will make you think twice about making fun of anyone with a disability, you just never know the demons they battle every day of their life. I cant believe all the hurdles he had to go through and he ended up doing great things. A very good read I would recommend to anyone teen or adult.
Pretty good! I thought it was a book about illegal drugs, like Go Ask Alice or Crank, so was surprised to find out it was about Tourette's/OCD. Normally not a book I would pick off the shelf, but I actually enjoyed it quite a bit! Very informative without dulling you to tears. He had such intense struggles that it was hard to get irritated by what would under other circumstances seem like whining. Pretty quick read. Definitely worth reading at least once.
