My Knock-down, Drag-out, Drugged-up Battle with My Brain
by James Patterson
Discover the story of one teenager’s struggles with OCD and Tourette’s Syndrome-and how he was able to overcome extraordinary setbacks.
Cory Friedman knows how it feels to have a body that won’t stop moving, to be really different from everyone else, to be made fun of every day, to be totally reckless, to never relax, to be shut out of everything, to break free and take control.
James Patterson’s Against Medical Advice riveted adults with the page-turning drama of one teenager’s courage, sacrifice, and triumph in confronting an agonizing medical condition. Now this deeply personal account of Cory Friedman’s intense struggles with Tourette’s Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder-as well as depression, anxiety, and alcohol addiction-is available for teen readers.
