Book Review: It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini

It's Kind of a Funny Story

It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini Recommended Ages: 13+ At the risk of sounding too much like a trailer warning for the newest episode of Law & Order, I would like to preface this discussion by noting that the themes of It’s Kind of a Funny Story may be of a more sensitive nature for some people out there. Craig Gilner is a fairly typical American teenager living in New York trying ... Read More »
