What an incredible story. At first it seems like a boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl sort of story. But, no. It is so much more than that. While there is a romantic sub plot within this novel, that is not all it is. I learnt about obsessive compulsive disorders. The story is told in such a way that it is impossible not to feel for these characters, to develop empathy, to understand their compulsion, their feelings.
This is a beautifully written novel, with interesting characters and problems and a realistic ending. While it seems, with the topic of OCD, it may be a bit heavy, it is quite light hearted and warming throughout. I laughed out loud on numerous occasions. I will be reading this book again, once is not enough.
It turns out the hero from room 113B is not unlikely at all.
