This book had me at “Broadway” and “E.T.: The Musical.”

Fake identities, a family secret, and the Witness Protection Program!

This book has such a catchy title and a lead who is a hypochondriac!


8. Taste Test by Kelly Fiore coming in 2013

New England, a reality cooking show for teens, and a mystery!

OCD the Dude and Me

9. OCD, The Dude, and Me by Lauren Roedy Vaughn coming March 2013
