Funny and heartbreaking

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2012-03-20) Very Good Permalink

Rene has OCD, he sniffs his hand and wears a batman cape when he's nervous, he's obsessed with the number 13 and he is convinced that if he doesn't do everything right someone will be in terrible trouble. A funny novel about figuring out life.
