Praise

There are good books, and there are great books, and then there are books with characters you’ll never forget. Vaughn’s debut about a high school senior whose struggle to fit in is compounded by the social quirks associated with her OCD is definitely one of those rare finds…A must-read. — Kirkus

Vaughn structures her debut as a combination of Danielle’s diary entries, e-mails, and the essays she writes for English class. Vaughn skillfully shows how making an actual friend and being introduced to the model of The Big Lebowski’s Dude (and his ability to “abide”) contribute to Danielle’s upturn. Her problems don’t go away, but her perspective on them and ability to cope shifts and improves. — Publishers Weekly

Vaughn employs various mediums such as emails, English essays, and letters to structure the plot of this novel.  This literary style creates a multidimensional view of Danielle and humanizes obsessive-compulsive disorder. This novel would be a great addition to any classroom or library because adolescents will learn about perseverance from a typical teenager who has a unique way of viewing and interacting with world. — VOYA
