A witty, yet stirring firsthand account of dealing with the daily difficulties of Tourette's Syndrome--a neurological disorder characterized by physical and verbal tics--Jess Thom shares a year of her life, detailing the entire spectrum of her experiences. From arm and leg tics that can occasionally be life-threatening to uncontrollable verbal outbursts--she says the word "biscuit" an average of 16 times per minute--Jess manages with the support of a close network of friends and family, as well as encountering strangers who can be unpredictably helpful and harmful. At once funny and shocking, tender and moving, this memoir provides a courageous and optimistic voice in the face of the major challenges, leaving readers with an inspiring message of resilience.
