Saving Sammy: Curing the Boy Who Caught OCD is Beth Alison Maloney’s memoir about her pre-teen son’s struggle with an unusual form of obsessive compulsive disorder. In a lovely, eloquent writing style that flows like a good novel, she tells her story. With close attention to the cycles of nature, the author paints vivid details that take you through all the seasons in coastal Maine. And with the same attention to detail, she makes her family’s day-to-day experiences tangibly and heartwrenchingly real.
