Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Consumed by a stream of dark thoughts and worries that she can't turn off, a girl coping with Purely-Obsessional OCD learns to accept herself and take control of her life through her experiences in poetry club"-- Provided by publisher.
Hidden beneath the straightened hair and expertly applied makeup is a secret that her friends would never understand: Samantha has Purely-Obsessional OCD and is consumed by a stream of dark thoughts and worries that she can't turn off. When Sam meets Caroline, she has to keep her new friend with a refreshing sense of humor and no style a secret. Caroline introduces Sam to Poet's Corner, and she is drawn to them immediately-- especially a guitar-playing guy with a talent for verse-- and starts to discover a whole new side of herself.

    Stone's third YA novel is a thoughtful romance with a strong message about self-acceptance. On the surface, Samantha McAllister has it all—success in the pool as a competitive swimmer and a group of popular friends. But inside she struggles with a secret that she fears could unravel everything: her purely obsessional OCD. At the start of junior year, Sam meets Caroline, who helps her manage her obsessions and draws her into the secret Poet's Corner, where she meets AJ, whom she falls for hard, and who is equally falling for her. But now that she has found her tribe, does she need to keep up the ruse of being "normal"? This sensitive novel boasts strong characterizations and conflicts that many teens will relate to. She deftly grounds Sam's OCD support system with both her mother and therapist and gives readers an endearing romantic lead to root for. A twist toward the end will surprise many readers, yet what follows falls perfectly in line with the story's hopeful message. Eminently readable. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
