Compulsion is the story of a teen struggling with obsessive compulsive disorder. Jake Martin desperately tries to sustain the “magic,” the prime numbers that he thinks are protecting him, but his obsession threatens to take over his whole life. The emotional turmoil that makes up Jake’s life is vividly depicted, and the plot is engaging and riveting. Heidi Ayarbe provides remarkable insight into a mixed up world. It’s impossible to read this book without being affected by it. This isn’t a light read - it’s intense and powerful. I would definitely recommend it.
