The Unlikely Hero of Room 13b

Teresa Toten

When Adam meets Robyn at a support group for kids coping with obsessive-compulsive disorder, he is drawn to her almost before he can take a breath. He’s determined to protect and defend her, to play Batman to her Robin, whatever the cost. But when you’re fourteen and the everyday problems of dealing with divorced parents and step-siblings are supplemented by the challenges of OCD, it’s hard to imagine yourself falling in love.

“A dragon lives forever, not so little boys.”

This heart wrenching story of growing up made me sit in a room for a few minutes and contemplate my life. I’m not even joking. It’s a lovely story, about first love and family, but it was hard for me to connect with at first. However, several chapters in and I started to enjoy the story. This book teaches you a lesson though, a lesson we probably all need to learn, it’s okay to cry.
