"Gilly Freeborn is possibly the most screamingly funny teenage character ever written." Will Davis, Guardian

At last this much-loved novel is back in print!

Tormented teenagers always make for a good read, but Claire Robertson has created in Gilly Freeborn, the heroine of the laugh-out-loud Letters of a Love Struck Teenager, one of the most hilariously tormented of them all. As Gilly writes to Alexa Deerheart, Agony Aunt of "The Bizz" magazine, her delightfully traumatic life is laid bare. The terror of having no breasts, the first tinglings (literally!) of love, and the trials and tribulations of relationships with family and friends make her life and absolute teenage hell. And as for spots--read it and weep!

Letters of a Love Struck Teenager is pure joy and Gilly Freeborn instantly translates as a female Adrian Mole, trapped in a body that is intent on defying her. Raw and passionate, decidedly naughty in places and crammed full of delightful bitchiness, this is a book to die for and certainly one that the grown-ups will enjoy too as they relive the pain of those hideously confusing teenage years. (Age 11 and up) --Susan Harrison

For the more than 2 million Americans with obsessive-compulsive disorder, the intrusive thoughts and uncontrollable behaviors can take a harsh toll, as author Jared Douglas Kant knows all too well. Diagnosed with OCD at age 11, Jared became ruled by dread of deadly germs and diseases, the unrelenting need to count and check things, and a persistent, nagging doubt that overshadowed his life.
In The Thought that Counts, Jared shares his deeply personal account of trial, tribulation, and ultimately triumph. Using anecdotes, narratives and sidebars, this book adds a human face to a complex disorder. Jared's funny, often touching, sometimes harrowing tale makes for compelling reading. Yet his memoir is only half the story. With the help of psychologist Martin Franklin, Ph.D., and veteran science writer Linda Wasmer Andrews, Jared paints the big picture for other teens with OCD. Drawing on the latest scientific and medical evidence, he explains how to recognize warning signs, where to find help, and what treatments have proved effective. Jared also offers practical suggestions on managing the symptoms of OCD at home, at school, and in relationships with family and friends. The result is both an absorbing memoir and a useful guide that will help to ease the isolation caused by OCD, assuring anyone recently diagnosed with the disease that, with commitment and hard work, they can overcome this illness.
Part of the Adolescent Mental Health Initiative series of books written specifically for teens and young adults, this volume offers hope to young people who are struggling with obsessive-compulsive disorder, helping them to overcome the challenges of this illness and go on to lead healthy, productive lives.
