about this item
My name is Zelah Green and I’m a cleanaholic.
I spend most of my life running away from germs. And dirt. And people. And I’m just about doing OK and then my stepmother packs me off to some kind of hospital to live with loads of strangers. It’s stuck in the middle of nowhere. Great.
There’s Alice who’s anorexic. Caro who cuts herself. Silent Sol who has the cutest smile. And then there’s me. It’ll be fine, I say to myself. It’s all going to be OK...
A touching, funny and sympathetic story for young adults about a teenage girl with OCD, 'Zelah Green' was a winner of the Manchester Children’s Book Awards 2010.
