Reprint. Published in Scotland. Originally published: Portland: Hawthorne Books & Literary Arts, 2012.

Ida has a secret: she is in love with her best friend.

But any time she gets close to intimacy, Ida faints or loses her voice.

She needs a shrink. Or so her philandering father thinks. Immediately wise to the head games of her new shrink, Siggy, Ida - and alter-ego Dora - hatch a plan to secretly film him.

But when the film goes viral, Ida finds herself targeted by unethical hackers. Dora: A Headcase is a contemporary coming-of-age story based on Freud's famous case study, retold and revamped through Dora's point-of-view.

Yuknavitch's Dora is radical and unapologetic - you won't have met a character quite like her before.
