"Feeling overshadowed by her older brother Grayson, whose OCD forces him to live a life of carefully coordinated routines, Kendra is driven to perfectionism until her reputation is tarnished by a cheating scandal that compels her to flee with her troubled sibling at her side." July 2013 Teen Scene newsletter http://www.nextreads.com/Display2.aspx?SID=5acc8fc1-4e91-4ebe-906d-f8fc5e82a8e0&N=650588

This story was interesting and well-told with plenty of emotional decision-making and cross-country adventure. It was interesting to peer into the life of someone with OCD and someone who has to live with them.

"Wouldn't that be awesome to come home with a giant T. rex head as a souvenir?"

Grayson rolled his eyes at me. "You can't just go find a dinosaur head," he answered. "It's not like they're lying on the side of the road waiting for someone to pick one up as a souvenir."

"How do you know?"

"Well, for starters, when they dug up the ground to lay the highway, they probably would have already found it."

"Maybe. You don't know."

He glared at me. "I do know. It's called logic. You're not going to find a dinosaur head out here."

"If I got out and found one, you'd feel like a real idiot right now," I countered. "How do you think the first guy who found a dinosaur head found it? By getting down on the ground and looking."

"Good luck. And it's called a skull, by the way. Not a head. And a T. rex skull would be way too big to take home as a souvenir."

"You have no imagination, Grayson."

"But I have logic."
