Zelah Green: One More Little Problem (Zelah Green)

The wonderful second in Vanessa Curtis’s books for teens about one girl and her uncontrollable obsession. Ideal for girls nearly ready for Jodi Picoult.

My name is Zelah Green – and I’m still here. Summer’s supposed to be good, right? But I’m stuck at home with a lousy laptop, stacks of homework to start and dad being more useless than ever. And then Caro turns up out of the blue, all heavy metal and piercings and attitude and my boring summer’s turned upside down. It’s like she knows just what to say to wind me up, sending my OCD right out of control …

Full of quirky humour and real heart, Zelah Green: One More Little Problem touches on mental health problems with a genuine warmth and empathy. The first in a genuinely brilliant book for teenage girls not quite ready to move on to Jodi Picoult.
