The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B by Teresa Toten

A perfectly adequate YA coming of age story that verges on maybe not great, but very good.

A clearly very well researched OCD mental struggle narrative that is excellently told is wrapped in an unremarkable teen romance that didn't really do anything

While it doesn't have a lot of plot momentum, and it may have left a few narrative strings too many frustratingly untied (mostly because of its teeter tottering POVs), I ultimately really liked this. More importantly, I think it's an important book t ...more

“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Douglas Adams
“The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.

To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.”
