      Lily Bailey had a strange childhood with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. By the age of 13, she had killed someone with a thought and spread untold disease. Only by performing secret routines could she correct her wrongdoing. But it was never enough.

      Because We Are Bad is model and journalist Lily Bailey's true story of extreme OCD. Her mesmerising writing charts the disease's tightening grip on her childhood and adolescence.
