The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B: Teresa Toten Wins Governor General's Award!

book cover

Teresa Toten has been a finalist in the Governor General's Awards twice -- this third time lucky, she's won!  Her book (also an e-book!) The Unlikely Hero of 13B is part mystery, part teen romance, and all about the taboo issue of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).  Adam and Robyn meet at their therapy sessions for support but they also find love and plenty of laughs in their unlikely friendship.  Check out Teresa's amazing website for excerpts, a Q & A with the author and  a You Are Not Alone button for resources on OCD and other emotional issues.
