James Patterson writing with Hal Friedman
Cory Friedman was an ordinary, fun-loving boy. Then one morning, he had an irresistible urge to shake his head, and before long his body became an unpredictable force. Cory had developed a rare combination of Tourette Syndrome, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and other neurological conditions. Desperate to help, his family embarked on a 15-year struggle in hope of a cure. On the brink of despair, he and his family decided to try a form of intervention never tried in such cases - a wilderness survival camp in bitter Utah. Throughout it all, Cory battled against the extraordinary events that were unfolding, talking him on a terrifying personal journey.
