Disclaimer: I have received this boom as part of an ARC giveaway.
I have come across many people who say they are OCD about something. Truly the misused of that word becomes quite apparent in this book. Totem offers us a insight into what it really is like to live with a mental illness, and the weight of it upon the individual. Her book is a fast read, enjoyable. The main character Adam does grow as a character, but only so much, like a reflection of reality, it takes a longer time than the book’s length for Adam to be ok. The book does not let Adam become only his illness but also incorporates the other aspects of Adams life, making the book come to life with it’s supporting characters. I look forward to other books by the writer.
