Summary

As a child, Lily Bailey knew she was bad. By the age of 13, she had killed someone with a thought, spread untold disease, and spied on her classmates. Only by performing a series of secret routines could she correct her wrongdoing. But it was never enough. She had a severe case of obsessive compulsive disorder, and it came with a bizarre twist. Raw and candid, this is a true story from a startlingly original writer. Read by the author.

Great book

This is a really well written and presented book, it described the obsessions and compulsions that she faced from her ocd very vividly. It really helped me to see my own ocd in different ways and was lovely to listen to. I admire her honesty and strength.

Something missing

On the one hand this book provides a fascinating insight into the exhausting nature of OCD. On the other the writing is a bit, breathless chick litty and there's no analysis of the origins of the writer's disorder. The writer hunts that it might have started with anxiety over her parents' terrible marriage but she doesn't really go there-perhaps to spare her parents' guilt.
