    "This book was a little hard for me to read. Important for kids, yes, but it touches on a lot of uncomfortable subjects such as self-harm and sexuality. Still, it paints an important picture to us, and reminds us how perfect may not always be perfect, and how sometimes things that aren't perfect may be exactly what we need. If I were to recommend this book, I would definitely think about the person I was recommending it to, just to make sure they can handle the aforementioned content."

    "I hadn't heard of this book but it actually has caught my interest. The outline given on Amazon doesn't specifically say there is a schizophrenic character, but the book's cover art suggests that the novel deals with issues of a similar nature. "

    "This book was amazing. It started out a bit like a normal kids life. It told the story of Craig and how he coped with life dealing with his parents, school sister, and his friends. But the surprise was the journey of him silently struggling with his depression and anxiety. It also showed the darker side to someone secretly suffering from these mental illnesses. It really opens the readers eyes to what it really is like to be inside of a person eyes and life who suffers from this. It also gives the insight of how it is to go through treatement when you turn to help from a hospital when you want to kill yourself."

    "This is generally the type of book I'm looking for. It does deal with mental illness, though a lot of people wouldn't consider being suicidal a mental illness. This definitely helped me with what I was looking for."

    "Its Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini was a really great book. The book itself uses a lot of things to ensue readers. The most subtle element is that it's kind of scattered and hard to find the direction in which it really is going in. However this is one of my favorite books by him. R.I.P"

    "A book I really enjoyed as a teenager and found quite relateable was It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini. The book is great, and years later I still like rereading it."
  • Joe Murray

    "This book attempts to portray a very difficult and not easily understandable side of growing up and does so very skillfully. The story follows a boy who had just gotten into a prestigious highschool and begins to spiral into depression when he can't come to terms with his and others' expectations of him. The story is profoundly sad but one worth the effort to read."
    Christina Thompson

    "It's difficult to find humor in a story about being suicidal, but Vizzini manages to do so. Fiction that takes place in the halls of mental hospitals has come to a have certain stigma these last few years, but people who usually write off the genre of psychological fiction would do well to give this book a chance.
