Great article about a sub-type of OCD called HOCD or homosexual OCD. (I personally prefer the title "Sexual Orientation OCD".) This person is plagued by obsessive thoughts of being "straight" or "gay"; continually questioning their sexual orientation and giving raise to the fear of not knowing for sure of ever being able to have a healthy, loving relationship with a partner to whom one feels genuinely attracted to.
The Unlikely Hero of Room 13 B by Teresa Toten. Adam is 14 and falling hard for the new girl in his OCD support group, Robyn. He's intensely driven to save her, but how can he, when his own behaviors are so overwhelming? Adam's story of coping with his worsening rituals and trying to navigate normal teenage feelings will endear him to readers. Without being cliche, the author has created an engaging and absorbing novel. For fans of Eleanor & Park. #MCDL #Toten #NewTeenBooks
