    I didn't expect me to like this book as much as I did but I really enjoyed reading it. I didnt even know what it was about when I took it from its shelf in the library. Wish it was longer thought.

    I have never marked a book on Good-reads less than five stars. ;-( Unfortunately, Chick :Lister broke the ice. I definitely did not enjoy this book at all, and my friend Jessica recommended it. She gives very good recommendations, but this book is not a book I would highly recommend. ;-/

I make lists all the time and it DOES calm and center me. Especially when I'm overwhelmed. He's taken it to a totally OCD level and realizes it. For a hi-lo book [...]

    Chick is like any other teenage boy dealing with school, parents, sports and girls, except for one major difference: he is an obsessive compulsive list writer. This compulsion forces Chick to write upward of twenty-five lists a day to keep him focused and release the pressure caused by an overly governing father. This is an interesting quick book for teenager readers. My only criticism is the protagonist should have been a junior or a senior instead of an eighth grader due to his shy yet forward [...]

    I don't normally read for middle school age kids, but the title character appealed to me. OCD presenting as list-making? I'm already on board that train!
