||Disturbed, obsessive, and perverted are all words that have been used to describe teenager Douglas Hanson. Refusing to see the truth of his situation or to take the anti-psychotics prescribed by his shrink, Doug single-mindedly tends to Madham, a miniature train town that covers three ping-pong tables in the isolation of his basement. His only other interests are his best friend, football star Andy Morrow, and the gorgeous Melissa Haverman. Melissa thinks he's repulsive, but Andy is his partner in crime, a crime that Doug continues to push out of his mind as much as possible. But soon his stalker-like interest in Melissa and his friendship with Andy come to the attention of others, and he is forced to face the truth. This deeply upsetting, powerful exploration of teen psychosis is from the author of GODLESS, the 2004 winner of the National Book Award for Young People's Literature.
