Last Monday we had dinner at Maximilien in Pike Place Market with Teresa Toten the author of The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B. If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of picking this book up, add it to your To Be Read pile for sure. A lot of the popular YA books are discussing mental illness right now and it’s a very important conversation to be had. Unlikely Hero is about an OCD support group, focusing on Adam (Batman) and Robyn (Robin). I loved the characters, the humor and honesty found within these pages and I know you’ll love it to. Teresa Toten was a fascinating person to talk to and you could see how passionate she is about normalizing the discussion of mental illness in every day life.
And thank you to Random House Kids for a delicious dinner!
Once we get a little more up and running over here I have a signed galley of this great read to giveaway to one of you lucky people! 🙂 Details to come!
