  1. I have severe pure-O OCD and ‘Turtles All the Way Down’ was surprisingly decent. It’s hard to find any good OCD rep.
    A few of my favorites:
    1. Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley (agoraphobia/social anxiety)
    2. Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman (schizophrenia)
    3. Freaks Like Us by Susan Vaught (schizophrenia)
    4. Everyone in This Room Will Someday Be Dead by Emily R. Austin (anxiety)
    5. How to Become a Planet by Nicole Melleby (depression)
