Review ↠ OCD the Dude and Me ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Lauren Roedy Vaughn Þ 8 Characters Summary OCD the Dude and Me With frizzy orange hair a plus sized body sarcastic demeanor and uniue learning profile Danielle Levine doesn't fit in even at her alternative high school While navigating her doomed social life. I ll admit that I had a very superficial idea of what I would be getting from a book with a cover and title like OCD the Dude and Me I mean the girl is holding up a bowling ball over her face and DUDE takes up at least a third of the entire cover All those expectations were very wrong I almost feel like I should apologize they were so wrong What I expected was a book like Sean Griswold s Head It s cute it s uirky it s a contemporary romance that also has an emotional center but is still comprised of all american YA fluff OCD the Dude and Me was not that Instead it was an honest sometimes heartbreaking look at what it s like to be inside the mind of a teenage outcast as she hates herself and struggles to understand other people Danielle is a lot like me I don t have OCD but I do have capital A Anxiety So reading her journals and assignments it all felt very familiar which was very much a part of why I loved this book so muchDanielle is over weight and socially inept She hates the color of her hair She doesn t know how to accept her damaged self She loves to read and write and journal every little bit of her life However I Jessica Robyn am also all these things I was surprised how emotionally connected I became to this book It s like that one book that speaks directly to you in that weird person to fictional person sort of wayA lot of the book is about emotions and high school As Danielle experiences her last year of high school primarily though her English class we experience things with her Danielle goes through a lot of normal high school experiences like a class trip to England and a school car wash but through her worry and obsessive nature she finds it difficult to cope among her classmates She is a wall builder a with holder and she has as we learn a pretty good reason to be that way That I can t talk aboutThere are so many aspects of the plot I want to discuss and so many things I want to say to try and make a case for this book but the honest truth is that I can t talk about my favourite moments because it would spoil it I m not even willing to use spoiler tags because I know you people you ll be too tempted I don t know how this book is going to fly for other people but I ended up loving it Will other people also love it I really don t know So here I am between a rock and a hard place I want to recommend this but I don t know if I can So let me just lay it all out there I woke up late today at 4PM yes PM because I haven t been sleeping well When I joined my mother in the living room I sat down and decided to read because nothing good was on TV It s been a very long time since I read a good book I didn t expect this one to break the losing streak But then I started reading OCD the Dude and Me and did not stop until I was finishedAs a word of warning this is written in journal format There s a lot of emails Grade 12 English essays and letters that ramble meander and leaves things out With that said this is the sort of story that should be written that way It didn t come across as stiff or withholding it felt like a very real person was laying all out there in her personal private record keeping space fueled by her OCD that sometimes crossed over into public spaces It made sense for her character and for the characters around her which made it all work it a strange and wonderful not patch worky sort of wayI would recommend this book to psychology lovers and people looking for a very inside the mind coming of age story that reveals itself gradually with a lot of humour and a lot of heartbreak OCD the Dude and Me made me feel that contradictory happysad that just leaves me wanting to keep this book and not give it back to the library No seriously I know there would be a fine but how much would that really be guys Also note to self see what this The Big Lebowski is all about

Lauren Roedy Vaughn Þ 8 Characters

Review ↠ OCD the Dude and Me ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Lauren Roedy Vaughn Þ 8 Characters Summary OCD the Dude and Me She writes scathing self aware and sometimes downright raunchy essays for English class As a result of her unfiltered writing style she is forced to see the school psychologist and enroll in a so. 35 stars On the upside Very funny Liked that it was a kid version of an epistolary novel told in writing assignments emails and diary entries And it wasn t static like so many stories told in letters Danielle is such a lively writer and so amusing and so self aware to a point the book moves along at a great clipI also loved the unfolding relationship between Danielle and her seemingly uptight English teacher who keeps demanding these very specific by the book essays Danielle simply refuses to write I liked the big gulf between her personal writing and her dutiful schooltherapy writing I liked that the book was full of kind flawed adults I particularly loved her relationship with her aunt I often laughed aloud at the portrayal of a new minted chirpy anxious group therapist and enjoyed the way Danielle s relationship with fellow group member Daniel unfolded in mutual eye rolliness of her And hey if you re a Big Lebowski fan like me ANY Lebowski book is a good Lebowski book though this book could have used MORE LEBOWSKI given that the Dude is in the TITLE that was a bit of a letdownOn the downside and this first one is a biggie sic Here s the book s jacket description With frizzy orange hair a plus sized body sarcastic demeanor and uniue learning profile Danielle Levine doesn t fit in even at her alternative high school SHE IS A SIZE 8 What the hell kind of message does that send to genuinely plus size teenagers paired with these repeated gross out descriptions of her humungous flabby body I understand that the author was pointing out that Danielle has crappy self esteem and this is about her perception that she s huge and hideous She thinks she s a size 12 ooh vast but her vintage shopping obsessed aunt says she s an 8 My heart breaks for readers who pick this up hoping to find a soulmate and instead find a character who makes them feel even worse about themselves Ah and I see from the reviews and Interwebs that this is indeed what s happening among Actual Girl Readers And while ordinarily I d be uick to complain that OH LOOK once again a book about a plus sized teenager has a straight sized girl on the cover in this case the book is about a straight sized girlI was also bummed by the Big Reveal of what caused Danielle s OCD It was the only thing that rang truly melodramatic and false OCD does not need a huge tragic trigger and in fact it might have been a fairer portrayal of mental illness if there hadn t been this defining event that s supposed to make us even sympathetic to her Parents Alternative high school setting so expect pot use More significantly there s sexual stuff specifically Two Minutes in the Closet related pressure filled and confusing doings that s upsetting to Danielle and to the reader I think this is fine for sophisticated middle schoolers though Fisiología veterinaria: T.1 of
