Ten minutes into a test left me looking for numbers, as if counting could snap off the lights or fire up the pencil sharpener (not to mention the air-conditioning) dying in slow motion? One minute my teeth knocked together, as if I had morphed into an ice sculpture. The next minute, sweat dribbled down my back and I could smell everyone breathing on me, the air so warm and soupy. Taking Paxil was like having the rug pulled out from under my brain cells. I didn’t plan on popping pills for the rest of my life
What enhances the novel is the author's personal connection to the issue.
What enhances the novel is the author's personal connection to the issue. She herself experienced depression and was treated with Paxil.

Crissa-Jean Chappell is a captivating new voice in teen fiction. I wish I'd had this book to read back then. Megan McCafferty, Sloppy Firsts. It would have done the trick.

You are in the United States store. More Than Good Enough. Crissa-Jean Chappell.
Fin can't stop counting. She's always heard a voice inside her head, ordering her to listen, but ever since she's moved to the Sunshine State and her parents split up, numbers thump like a metronome, rhythmically keeping things in control. When a new doctor introduces terms such as "clinical depression" and "OCD" and offers a prescription for medication, the chemical effects make Fin feel even more messed up. Until she meets Thayer, a doodling, rule-bending skater who buzzes to his own beat—and who might just understand Fin's hunger to belong, and her struggle for total constant order.
Crissa-Jean Chappell's candid and vividly told debut novel shares the story of a young teen's experience with obsessive compulsive disorder and her remarkable resolve to find her own inner strength.
