Welcome to Teen Reads!
For eight weeks this summer, every Monday, the Teen blog will feature a book review and reading recommendations within a given theme.
Each review will be a recommended read from an OPL Teen Advisory Group member.
Here is this week’s review and recommendations.
Review by Kuhu from Ruth E. Dickinson branch
Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone
Samantha McAllister has a secret: Purely obsessional OCD. When her new friend introduces her to a secret poetry group at school, she finds that she feels at home in the tight-knit group and feels more normal than she's felt in ages... that is, until she begins questioning reality as a whole. This extremely well-written book gives us insight on what OCD can feel like, as well as creating vivid characters that learn things as we do. You'll never see it coming!
