    Living with OCD

    I was very interested in reading this book for several reasons. The biggest is that the protag has OCD. This is something that runs in my family, something that I've dealt with up close and have borderline issues with personally. I was very surprised to find that Karo nailed the disorder in every part of my knowledge. Chuck is a teenage boy with OCD and he acts just the way any normal guy would act only different. He just has his special ticks. Karo has given him an amazing personality..full of spunk and attitude. I can honestly say that at several points through the book I thought this is totally my brother (when he was younger). Chuck has the greatest best friend and of course there is a girl. I read L&C in one sitting and during the entire time I had a smile on my face and would laugh out loud to no one but myself. There is so much heart and honesty written into the story line that you can't help but to keep reading and find out what happens. I am incredibly pleased that I was able to read a copy of this novel and extremely happy that someone has taken steps to write about how someone like Chuck goes through life on a day-by-day with the struggles of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. There are some language and sexual situations that may make some folks uncomfortable however, I think it fit in just right with most average teen boys.

    Karo in long form, worth it!

    Been reading Karo's newsletter for a dozen years, and his first novel was pleasantly surprising. The story was entertaining and Chuck is a lovable character trying to cope with his teenage awkwardness and issues. I did not know what to expect but had the thought "he nailed that topic" on several occasions. Insightful and witty, looking forward to seeing more of these.

    Funny & Original

    Book Review (ARC) by Kole
    This was a refreshing book after reading so many sci-fi’s and fantasies. It’s a nice plausible story. The characters are unique and very lifelike and they story is funny and original. Although the story is a little easy to predict it still provides a good time while reading it. The characters make you feel like you can relate to them and they show their emotions very clearly. I’m wondering if it’s planned to continue on in a series. If so, I’d definitely read them! Book Rating: 4/5

    Book Review (ARC) by Jessica
    I agree with Kole that this was a nice departure. Neither of us read very much contemporary YA fiction and we should because there are some great ones out there. First off I loved the name of the book. The play on the medication name with the Converse sneakers that are worn by the main character worked wonderfully, especially as the main character Chuck is trying to figure out his life with it's ups and downs. The characters in the story are so complete I felt like I'd known them forever. Chuck could walk right off the page and into my life and I'd accept him just how he is because he feels real. Seeing a character that doesn't have it all figured out, but isn't clueless about the world around him is refreshing. Too often main characters seem as if they have no idea that they are the most gorgeous person on the face of the Earth, but Chuck is well aware of what's good about him and what he needs to work on. That awareness makes him human, realistic, and intriguing.

    While the story was a bit predictable (again it's a contemporary novel, there isn't some supernatural creature that's going to swoop in and change the world in a moment's notice), it was still charming. I found myself trying to say some of the lines out loud, over and over again, to hear what they would sound like. OK, that might sound strange, but there is a character that sounds like they are asking a question every time they speak, so I was trying to mimic it and it entertained me...and those around me hopefully. Some of the bits made me feel a little weird with the fact that Kole and I were both reading this story (mostly the masturbation count and the talk of breasts). Seeing as how I'm Kole's mom I didn't even want to go there. Either way it was entertaining! Book Rating: 3/5
