“It’s Kind of a Funny Story” 

by Ned Vizzini

“It's Kind of a Funny Story” is a coming-of-age novel for young adults. Loosely based on the personal experience of author Ned Vizzini, it follows the story of fifteen-year-old Craig Gilner, whose depression and decision to end his life lands him in the adult psychiatric unit of a Brooklyn hospital. There he meets a diverse group of fellow patients and is able to confront the source of his anxiety.
