"If you could read my mind, you wouldn't be smiling." Samantha McAllister looks just like the rest of the popular girls in her junior class. But hidden beneath the straightened hair and expertly applied makeup is a secret that her friends would never understand: Sam has Purely-Obsessional OCD and is consumed by a stream of dark thoughts and worries that she can't turn off. Second-guessing every move, thought, and word makes daily life a struggle, and it doesn't help that her lifelong friends will turn toxic at the first sign of a wrong outfit, wrong lunch, or wrong crush. Yet Sam knows she'd be truly crazy to leave the protection of the most popular girls in school. So when Sam meets Caroline, she has to keep her new friend with a refreshing sense of humor and no style a secret, right up there with Sam's weekly visits to her psychiatrist. Caroline introduces Sam to the Poet's Corner, a hidden room and a tight-knit group of misfits who have been ignored by the school at large. Sam is drawn to them immediately, especially a guitar-playing guy with a talent for verse, and starts to discover a whole new side of herself. Slowly, she begins to feel more "normal" than she ever has as part of the popular crowd...until she finds a new reason to question her sanity and all she holds dear.

Where do I even begin? The happiness I felt when Sam found a place to belong and the heartbreak I felt when I found out Caroline wasn't real. I could honest picture Poet's Corner and it makes me really wish it was a real place. I love the way Tamara Stone does an amazing job at describing OCD. For most if not all of the book I felt as though I was Sam. I highly recommend!! ( )

CW: Teenager living with OCD, suicide off page of teenage girl 10 years prior, suicide note read

This book felt really precious and quite important. The writing was so engaging and so authentic that I honestly felt like I knew Sam/Samantha. Her pain felt raw and real and I desperately wanted her to grow in confidence and find her voice. I truly hope that there is a 'Poet's Corner' out there for everyone who needs a place to be themselves. It's such a powerful thing to speak your truth.

it's just not good :( but since it's a really popular book I feel okay saying that it's really good comedic content and it's fun to laugh at ( )

I feel like this book is THE stereotypical contemporary YA novel. It hits just about every trope for a high school romance/coming-of-age sort of story and they aren't done in a particularly interesting or emotionally compelling way either. It was hard for me to get invested in it when most of the plot and character beats are so played out already.

As for the mental health angle, Sam's OCD seemed increasingly like an afterthought as the book progressed. There's no inherent problem with having a mentally ill protagonist without making the mental illness the main focus, but that's not really how it's handled here. Her OCD is talked up a lot. It's said to be severe and it seems in the book's description and in the opening that it will be a major issue for her. But despite this, it never really feels like it affects Sam significantly. It's easy to hide even from her hyperjudgmental mean-girl friends and the symptoms she does show aren't given much weight. Then at the end (view spoiler) With these two issues together it feels to me that the issue of mental illness was treated with kiddy gloves with a side of inspiration porn.

Speaking of topics that were treated too lightly, bullying comes up as an issue in this book as well. The bullying itself is portrayed as really nasty, but luckily we get to gloss right over all that to get to the insta-love, falling for a hot emo boy with a guitar cliché. While bullying had a severe impact on the victim in the past, its effect is squarely in the past, and the romantic relationship between bully and bullied is in no way affected by it. That, along with the fact that Sam hadn't reflected on her behavior or felt any remorse for being a bully until she got the hots for a boy she'd bullied (conveniently now conventionally attractive and without the stutter that had got him bullied in the first place), left a bad taste in my mouth.

Overall, the issue with this book is that it lacks emotional depth. I found it to be a cliché, but serviceable, popcorn book with some slightly uncomfortable undertones. ( )

It's a beautiful book . I liked being in the protagonists head and the poet's society is everything. Ending was definitely a nice twist. ( )
