It's Kind Of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini - A Book Review

I’ve seen It’s Kind Of a Funny Story on several must-read lists, especially those aimed at young adults.  I must admit that when I learned of the book’s plot, as well as the author’s unfortunate passing, well, it was with morbid fascination that I finally sat down to read it. 155 more words

Be More Chill by Ned Vizzini

First off, I LOVE Ned Vizzini. He was one of my favorite young adult authors. I was rereading It’s Kind of a Funny Story last year when I heard about his death, which changed my perspective of that book altogether since the book is loosely based on his time in an adult psychiatric ward — but that’s beside the point. 252 more words
