Adam Spencer Ross is a 14-year-old boy struggling with OCD. Additionally, his mom is receiving threats from an anonymous sender. Adam has behaviors that come with his condition: counting, thresholds, and ordering.
The majority of this book takes place at Adam's support group that is filled with people who have OCD just like him.
One day, Adam is enduring another long session of group therapy when a girl named Robyn shows up. And right then and there, Adam knows that she will be his- his love, his girl, and his world.
Throughout the book Adam (who is also known as "Batman"), Robyn, and the other group "superheroes" take a journey that involves God and the help of the group counselor, Chuck. They work on finding freedom from their compulsive habits.
The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B, is not one of my favorite books. Nonetheless, Teresa Toten is a very skilled writer. She is able to show every emotion there is to finding love and losing it.
I think that teenagers who are religious and believe religion helps solve problems would prefer this book over teenagers who are not religious.
Most of the characters were very well developed. Toten pointed out many behaviors that those dealing with OCD might have when they feel different emotions. For example, when Adam was nervous or scared he would tap or count in his head.
