My name is Zelah Green and I'm a cleanaholic.

I spend most of my life running away from germs. And dirt. And people. And I'm just about doing OK and then my stepmother packs me off to some kind of hospital to live with loads of strangers. It's stuck in the middle of nowhere. Great.

There's Alice who's anorexic. Caro who cuts herself. Silent Sol who has the cutest smile. And then there's me. It'll be fine, I say to myself. It's all going to be OK...

A touching, funny and sympathetic story for young adults about a teenage girl with OCD, 'Zelah Green' was a winner of the Manchester Children's Book Awards 2010.

    " Got a little bored to be honest, I thought it was really cliched and the story only really got going just as the book ended. A bit too unsophisticated for me, but I guess an enjoyable easy read all the same. "

    " Zelah Green has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. She has to wash her hands 31 times, and hop on the stairs everyday and scrub her face until it bleeds. She can't touch anyone or anything that carries germs. Which pretty much means she can't touch anything. Then she is sent to get treatment, where she meets other kids with problems, and learns to work through her own. But can she overcome the disorder, and get on with a relatively normal live? Zelah Green is a quick read, and interesting. It deals with a number of problems people face, such as self harming and anorexia. I would have liked a little more detail about the other kids' backgrounds, and I felt the ending was a little rushed, but it is definitely worth a read and I think I would read anything else Curtis cared to write. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 12/23/2013

    " This book slowly introduces teenagers into a word of various problems, mostly OCD while just hinting at others and as well as being a good read is also an educational one as well as an eye opener! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 12/14/2013

    " Books about problems are my particular interest.I borrowed it a few years back from the library, and have ordered it. I can't wait to read it again. "

    " I really enjoyed this book! It was in the view of a girl who had OCD,(Obsessive, Compulsive Disorder), so it really showed what people like Zelah had to go through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexa | 11/11/2013

    " Unique, interesting plot and endearing characters - my only complaint is that it wasn't long enough! I felt like Zelah's problem, and those of the other characters, could have been covered in more detail. Still, a great read. "
