    The summer before entering sixth grade, Sammy, a bright and charming boy who lived on the coast of Maine, suddenly began to exhibit disturbing behavior. He walked and ate with his eyes shut, refused to bathe, burst into fits of rage, slithered against walls, and used his limbs instead of his hands to touch light switches, doorknobs, and faucets.

    What did you love best about Saving Sammy: Curing the Boy Who Caught OCD?

    The author's honesty and courage to share her and her son's story.


    Any additional comments?

    I have a daughter who struggled with a chronic debilitating illness, not once, but twice - two different illnesses. Local doctors gave up on her and referred us to psychologists and psychiatrists each leading no closer to her getting any better. I too fired and hired countless doctors, also traveling hundreds of miles away from home seeking answers until finally the answers came. I commend Beth Alison Maloney for sharing her and her son's heart breaking and triumphant journey with all mothers (and I suppose many fathers) giving them hope when the medical community seems to present none. It is beautifully written and I was unable to stop the recording until I had completed the entire book. Parents, never, NEVER give up on your child. You are his or her greatest ally!
