Two-time Governor General''s Award nominee Teresa Toten is back with a compulsively readable new book for teens!

When Adam meets Robyn at a support group for kids coping with obsessive-compulsive disorder, 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 Robyn--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. How can you have a "normal" relationship when your life is so fraught with problems? And that''s not even to mention the small matter of those threatening letters Adam''s mother has started to receive . . .

Teresa Toten sets some tough and topical issues against the backdrop of a traditional whodunit in this engaging new novel that readers will find hard to put down.

Editorial Reviews

"A compassionate, funny, heartwarming story about a band of misfit teens-It''s One Flew Over the Cuckoo''s Nest  for the YA set."
 -Susin Nielsen, Governor General's Award-winning author of The Reluctant Journal of Henry K. Larsen

Praise for The Taming
"Walters and Toten offer an unflinching look at the dark side of young love that is both believable and--importantly--entertaining."
-Quill & Quire (starred review)

"Emotional manipulation, fights, making up, sex, abuse--it''s all here in one fast read. This collaborative work is bound to catch the attention of teens and fans of books that look beyond the fluff and sparkle of so many teen romances."
-CM Magazine
