The Worry Knot by Mary Bleckwehl – Review by Jenny See

The Worry KnotThe Worry Knot by Mary Evanson Bleckwehl
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book covers a lot of real life issues that most people don’t want to talk about or if they do, they gloss over it and don’t get to the heart of the issues. This book may not be a true story, but it is real for many families.
It’s a beautiful story about Rourke, a 12 year old, who suffers from anxiety. As with most kids his age he worries about fitting in at school, and girls (although his crush comes with extra worries). He also worries about his brother (who has ASD) and the responsibilities his parents give him to help care for his brother.
I recommend this book to people of all ages, not just young adults. It’s a wonderful story that shows that there’s nothing wrong with being imperfect and different.
