    1. Books do many different things for readers. They can evoke emotions, they can educate, they can even change someone's life. "OC Me" by Kristin Albright has the power to do all three in my opinion. It's the type of book I believe everyone should read - every teenager, every parent, every adult. This should be on reading lists in every high school. It's painfully accurate in its depiction of a mental disorder. But it's never preachy or boring or unemotional. The opposite is the case. It's deeply e [...]

    2. OC Me is a realistic, clean read for teens. It's especially perfect for those who may be struggling with OCD or anyone who is curious about what it might be like for someone suffering from the disorder.What I really like about this story is the slow buildup of Amy’s OCD.

While she copes with her aunt’s death (and an sbsentee mother), she struggles to und [...]

I mean, Opal Colored Daisies. I'm tearing up just thinking about how much he cared about her to do [...]

The author did a tremendous job in developing the heroine Amy as her anxiety disorder slowly manifested itself, the effects of which permeated her romantic relationship with classmate James. The progression of the disorder was realistic, as were Amy’s reactions to scenarios she began to encounter. I was very sympathetic toward Amy and I felt her angst throughout [...]

    7. Such a well written book! It had me tearing up. It was a great way to introduce and inform people about OCD and anxiety disorders, other than what is portrayed by the media. The way the Kristin wrote this book, I was feeling every emotion the characters were feeling. It all felt so real. I especially loved the relationship Amy and James have. He is such a sweet, caring, and supportive guy. I loved this book, and can't wait to read more from Kristin!

    8. A very touching storyI read this book because it had been recommended as a resource on OCD, but I finished reading it with tears in my eyes and a full heart realizing it helped me see my own OCD as less of a burden. Wonderful engaging story that's more about acceptance and friendship and less about an acronym.
