Synopsis

The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B by Teresa Toten

A beautiful, funny and heart-wrenching story of love, brokenness and the purest form of bravery: giving in and asking for help.Understated and heart-warming, this is a story of love and determination that shows how everyone can be a superhero in their own way. When Adam meets Robyn 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. This beautiful story will appeal to readers of John Green.

Reviews

An unexpectedly funny and sweet YA novel. . . a warm, inclusive novel and well worth a read. * We Love This Book * For my tastes Teresa Toten's The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B is already up there with the best books so far this year... It's a warm, funny novel that moves the reader at the same time as giving a thoughtful insight into the world of an OCD teenager. Adam is one of those unforgettable characters who it's extremely difficult to leave behind. -- The Scotsman * The Scotsman * A fantastically-written tale that will blow you away. Poignant and beautiful. -- Independent Bookshop Week supplement * The Guardian * This is a story about a tender first love, and about a boy living with OCD. It's a page turner, desperately sad, and surprisingly funny! * The School Librarian *
