Book Review: It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini
Book Reviews / April 20, 2014

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 insanely hard to get in to an exclusive upscale high school that will cement his high-powered future career in stone. But upon entry to the illustrious executive pre-professional high school, Craig discovers anxiety any driven young student is likely familiar with, and unfortunately, it overwhelms him to the nth degree.
