Description:

Twitch, Jerk, FreakSam Carrier has been called them all. Because of his Tourettes syndrome, Sam is in near constant motion with tics and twitches and verbal outbursts. So, of course, high school is nothing but torment. Forget friends; forget even hoping that beautiful, perfect Naomi will look his way. And home isnt much better with his domineering stepfather reminding him that the only person who was more useless than Sam was his dead father, Jack. But then an unexpected turn of events unearths the truth about his father. And suddenly Sam doesnt know who he is, or even where hell go next. What he does know is that the only girl in the world who can make him happy and nervous at the same time is everywhere he turns . . . and hed give anything just to be still.
