Reviews

"This first-person narrative of an increasingly common behavioral-health issue will undoubtedly be a useful tool for both classroom and group discussion." --Kirkus Reviews

"First-time author Swartz creates a clear, moving portrayal of obsessive-compulsive disorder through the authentic voice of middle schooler Molly Nathans." --Publishers Weekly

"With middle school friendships and family relationships at its heart, this novel offers an empathetic guide to coping with a mental health issue." --School Library Journal

"A powerful but not overpowering novel, informing audiences about OCD with tact and acceptance through an accessible and relatable cast of characters. . ." --The Bulletin

"The exploration of OCD is thorough and compelling, and the book is as well researched (including a list of consulted resources) as it is gently written." --Booklist

"Elly Swartz's extensive research into Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is evidenced by the authenticity of Molly's voice and perspective. Readers will share in Molly's journey from pain to healing in this excellent debut novel." --School Library Connection
