If you have been close to anyone who deals with anxiety or compulsion disorders and want to know what is going on in their head, you have to read this! Aza has been dealing with her issues most of her life, only exacerbated by the premature death of her father when she was a child. She has only a few close friends and can usually be found in her own head. She is struggling with coming to terms with who she is, what makes her “her”, and how that factors in to treating her conditions. The mysterious disappearance of the local wealthy con man (who also happens to be the father of a long lost acquaintance of hers who she might have a thing for) brings about some interesting situations that end up helping Aza on her journey.
