A fun and friendly resource for parents and children with OCD



“A wonderful guide for children and parents with anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder, highly recommended.”

- Dr. Daniel Geller M.D., Professor Harvard University,
Director of OCD and Tics Department, Massachusetts General Hospital.


“In this lovely and sensitive book, Rhonda Martin really captures the internal experience of a child with OCD. When I started working in this area it was just Judith Rapoport M.D., Henrietta Leonard M. D., Susan Swedo M.D. and me. Rhonda C. Martin is in that Lineage and I am grateful for it!”

- John March M. D., Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science,
Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, School of Medicine at Duke University


“Stuck is a wonderful gift to families of kids with OCD. Children with the condition will feel less alone through identifying with Cinnamon’s story. By putting a name to their fears, Rhonda Martin’s book makes OCD a little less overwhelming for kids and helps parents recognize the signs and symptoms of a treatable condition.”

- Stephen Grcevich, M.D., Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist,
Department of Psychiatry Faculty, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine


“I will be using Stuck in my clinic to help my young patients with OCD, as well as their families. It is amazing how accurately Rhonda Martin has captured the thoughts and suffering that these children experience. It will be valuable for parents, family and friends to better understand what goes on inside the brain of a person with OCD. But, even more valuable will be for children (who may not be able to express themselves fully) to take this book, point to a page, and say “Mommy! Daddy! This is how I feel!” My patients will benefit from some of the therapeutic techniques being used in the thinking of the main character, thus providing valuable modeling and reinforcement to their own ongoing treatments. In short, Stuck is masterfully done and valuable for people and families of all ages who deal with, or love someone, with OCD.”
