This book is an excellent look at mental illness for teens. Adam has OCD and meets Robyn in a support group. As Adam helps the others in the support group, who become his friends, his own issues become worse, due to his mother's hoarding and her other issues. When Adam sees that Robyn is getting better and he is not, he is determined not to drag her down, even though he loves her. There is love and friendship and dealing with many mental health issues in this fast paced, well-written book for teens.
