I feel conflicted about this book as it had some amazing moments of character development but also fell flat on the actual storyline. I found the depiction of Valencia's OCD and anxiety at times over the top and at times too real. I felt for her and struggled along when she had to yet again call her family in the middle of the night just to make sure they are ok. But I hated some of the stereotypical manifestations such as having to check the stove three times or having to do certain things in a very specific order. We all have heard of those kinds of symptoms before and it would've been more significant to show how OCD can be different for everyone. Aside from that, I thought the story itself was predictable and bland. There was also a lot going on that convoluted some of the plot events for me. Overall, I feel only meh about this book.
