Lexapros and Cons by Aaron Karo - Public

Karo, Aaron Lexapros and Cons, 230 pgs, Farrar Straus Giroux Books for Young Readers, 2013. $16.99. Language: R ( 100+ swears   50+ Fs); Mature Content: R; Violence: PG.  

Chuck Taylor has issues with OCD so his parents have him seeing a psychiatrist. He feels his problems are manageable, but when the new girl at school shows interest in him, he starts to take Lexapro to help him face his anxieties. Things go from bad to worse.  

Although the author is a comedian, I didn’t find this book all that funny, and the amount of language was gratuitous.  Subject matter was also very mature.  This book is not for a school library.  PUBLIC ONLY Lisa Librarian

I absolutely agree with this. I can't imagine handing it to a student. This is a shame, since the cover is great.
