Rebecca Ryan is 16 years old and living near Kilrush in Co. Clare, Ireland. Since the age of four she has experienced symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), a mental illness marked by obsessive thoughts and repetitive behaviours and other ‘nonsensical’ rituals.

At 13 she went from being a happy young teenager with a new start in secondary school to a girl who had to jump through windows to be able to leave the house at all. The story, written by herself in a humorous and clear style, details Rebecca’s experiences with symptoms, school, therapy and ultimate management and recovery.

It should assure young people struggling with this disorder that they are not alone. When she leaves school Rebecca hopes to study animation. Her own sketches appear throughout the book.
