Compulsion by Heidi Ayarbe****

Compulsion is about Jake, a high school soccer star. He always has to know the time and always has to make a prime number using order of operations with the time. He has an obsession with this to clear the "spiders" from his head, but in order to do so he has to make a prime number out of random things: how many words someone says and even just how many steps they take. He thinks that winning his third championship in a row will grant him protection from the "spiders," but everything must be perfect. Exactly the way he needs it to be.

This book shows that even the most perfect people aren't always perfect. I think is a great story for someone looking for some inspiration. This is a book for teens to read.
