It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini

15 year old Craig has studied so hard to get into Brooklyn's prestigious Executive Pre-Professional High School. Once he gets in, however, stress takes over his life. He delves into a deep depression. One day, after stopping taking his meds, he attempts suicide, but then calls a suicide hotline and admits himself into a mental hospital. There he meets many people, some completely off the hook, some sweet, and some delusional.
This book was really sweet and hilarious. You felt bad and worried for Craig, but his voice was so smart and at points sarcastic, and the people he met and described were amusing. I think a lot of people would enjoy this book.

5 Stars
