"When Bea meets Beck, he's having a panic attack during a blackout at a school dance. They end up kissing before the lights come back on, which makes things awkward when they meet again, this time in group therapy. Beck has OCD (which includes a constant need to wash his hands and an obsession with the number eight), and while Bea claims she only has a few "little anxieties," it soon becomes clear that her issues are much more severe -- and more dangerous. Can Bea and Beck's love survive if they see each other for who they really are? Find out in this unflinching yet disarmingly hopeful romance."

I can't speak to the accuracy of this book as an inside look at the mind of a teen with OCD, but I enjoyed it. Bea is an appealing narrator, and it's hard not to root for her as she works past minimizing her problems to facing them. For a "problem novel" the tone of the book is pretty light and funny, while still giving you an idea of how constraining it is to live with OCD. I found the ending a little unsatisfying, but the endings of problem novels are always hard -- you want hope but not an overly simplified solution.

I'm not going to lie, the first four pages of the book weren't as interesting as I hoped but as soon as I got into the second chapter, I couldn't stop reading. Beck and Bea's relationship was juicy and I couldn't get enough. From the time they reunited in the group session for teens facing troubles of their own to the very end I couldn't get enough. I want there to be a second book so bad. Thanks for reading this review of this book.
