'Because We are Bad: OCD and a Girl Lost in Thought' is a new book about one young lady's experiences of growing up with OCD. The book was published last week, so we sent a review copy to one of our members, James Lloyd, and this is his review.
Book review by James Lloyd
Because We Are Bad: OCD and a Girl Lost in Thought by Lily Bailey. Published by Canbury Press, Hardback, £14.99
The next time someone tells you that they’re “a little bit OCD”, give them a copy of this book. Because We Are Bad is a moving, searingly honest account of what it’s really like to live with OCD. Lily takes us back to her early experiences of the illness, describing how it took root inside her mind and evolved into a monster.
