The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B by Teresa Toten

The more I think about this book, the more I like it. Adam is a teenager struggling with OCD. In group therapy he takes on the role of Batman and meets his Robin(Robyn) and a host of other teens. The book does an outstanding job describing the OCD patterns Adam is locked in. Other characters are all portrayed fairly. Adam’s adults are flawed but loving – there’s no real bad guy here. I find myself hoping that the author might share the story of another character with us. I’d like to hear more about all of them, especially Thor.
