      'A beautifully-rendered memoir' – PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

      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.

       Lily Bailey's true story of extreme OCD charts the disease's tightening grip on her childhood and adolescence.
