Kissing Doorknobs was a really great book. It's all about a girl who suffers from OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) and her struggles of overcoming it. It carries a great storyline that'll keep you hooked. Terry Spencer Hesser really does a great job with the characters in this book, they all show real depth and genuality. It is one I encourage everyone to read!
