    Excellent book. Very moving account of a boy's journey through recovery dealing with Tourette's syndrome. Told in boy's viewpoint. Very factual,
    emotional. A fast read.

    This is not one of Patterson?s normal novels. This is a true story that I?m very glad I read. It is told by Cory, the boy himself. When he was around five, his life started changing so dramatically that it?s hard to believe he could still keep going. I normally shy away from true stories, because I?ve found them to be a little boring. This one is like nothing I?ve ever read before. It?s very fast paced and almost impossible to put down. If you?re considering reading this book, please do, you won?t be sorry. I recommend it to anyone I talk to?.it?s that good! Also, I hardly ever give a book 5 stars.
