The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B

By Teresa Toten

A beautiful, funny and heart-wrenching story of love, brokenness and the purest form of bravery: giving in and asking for help.

Understated and heart-warming, this is a story of love and determination that shows how everyone can be a superhero in their own way. When Adam meets Robyn he is drawn to her almost before he can take a breath. He's determined to protect and defend her, to play Batman to her Robin, whatever the cost. But when you're fourteen and the everyday problems of dealing with divorced parents and step-siblings are supplemented by the challenges of OCD, it's hard to imagine yourself falling in love. This beautiful story will appeal to readers of John Green.

  • Emotive and warm writing that adresses topical and important themes.
  • Winner of the 2013 Governor General Literary Award for Children's Text.
  • "Toten spins a compelling and occasionally humorous story about the difficulties ALL adolescents face in getting to know themselves and how they fit in society..." - Montreal Gazette
