I was in the middle of reading another book when I saw this in the store I m a big fan of James Patterson and it looked interesting so I picked it up and started reading In no time I had read the first four chapters and decided that I had to buy the book and read it now I know that Patterson s books read really fast and I knew this would also I finished this in just a couple of days, which is pretty quick for me now because I have so little time to read.This is the story of a teenage boy Co I was in the middle of reading another book when I saw this in the store I m a big fan of James Patterson an I listened to this on CD since my professions find me in my car most of the time Having a son with sever ADHD, and upon the recommendation of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck, I bought this on CD A fascinating bookso many of the struggles this young man faced with Tourette s, anxiety disorder and OCD modeled many of the symptoms my son faces on a daily basis And, now that he is of age,

list for a while and then my husband read it and was impressed by it so I finally downloaded it and listened BTW not sure if it makes a difference but it was an mp3 version not a cd version I listened to However, it seems to be the same reader, length, etc.I was not impressed I enjoyed inhaling this book in only two days I m usually a slow reader, and this is truly a quick read an interesting real
