The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B Book Review

The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B - Teresa Toten

This is a book about character, and it has really really good characters. Its one of those haunting books that you will remember. It discusses many teen and adult issues, like cancer, death, OCD, etc. I really loved it. The audio book is especially great to listen to.

 

Adam is in a group for people coping with OCD. There he meets a girl named Robyn. And he makes friends he never thought he would have. His home life isn't easy though, he has a little brother battling disease, divorced parents and a mom who can barely take care of herself much less him. When the threatening letters start to come to his mom he wonders if he can keep it all in.

 

I think a lot of kids can relate to the many themes and ongoing scenarios in this book. Whether its dealing with OCD or divorced parents. I picked this up on a whim and I'm really glad I did.
