Cleanliness and Godliness by Doug Rinaldi
Brad always knew he was different. Odd and sickly, but also a smart and pious young man who loved his mother. It wasn’t until he started seeing shapes forming before his eyes and hearing a troublesome scratching sound that he decided to take matters into his own hands.
This actually broke my heart. Poor Brad his mental illness ruled him. Brilliantly written I'm so so happy I took the chance on a new to me author.
