Review: I had mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, I could really feel Sam's emotions as he struggled with his disease and stories of the father who gave it to him. I could tell that these parts of the story really related to the author's life in some way. However, I didn't like the fact that most of the book was taken over by Sam discovering his family and getting to know Naomi. There was a point where I almost gave up on this book. Although I stuck with because I was curious about where Sam would end up. The way things ended didn't give me any real satisfaction. I think I would have enjoyed this book so much more if it was a story about a high school student with Tourettes trying to fit in, instead of a guy who just graduated and is out to discover the truth about his family.. and oh yeah they all have Tourettes. The only character i really conncected with was Sam during some portions of the story. I din't really get his and Naomi's relationship if thats what you even want to call it. Overall, this book was just ok. I liked parts of it, but just didn't understand the turns it took.
