It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini


Craig Gilner thinks he should be happy: he has been accepted to Executive Pre-Professional High School after endless draconian preparation. Instead he finds himself mired in a relentless cycle of vomiting, sleepless nights, and massive anxiety over his academic performance. Overwhelmed by depression after a bad night, he decides to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge. Vizzini has written a sad and funny story about teen depression that will appeal to fans of Tales of the Madman Underground. Click here for the movie trailer.
