A classic-feeling middle-grade novel with a modern twist about a girl dealing with friendship, family, and OCD.
When Molly's mom leaves their family to take a job in another country, twelve-year-old Molly is certain she'll be back in one year, as promised. Her older sister isn't so sure. To make matters worse, Molly's relationship with her best friend is starting to feel strained just as she's nervously preparing for an upcoming poetry slam.
Suddenly, Molly's world feels like it's spinning out of control. Counting, measuring, and organizing help Molly feel more in control. But in time, her coping mechanism becomes its own problem.
But with some help from her siblings and friends, Molly is able to face her OCD and be strong enough to get help for it.
