“You never know what truly would have happened if you had done your shoulds and woulds. Your life might have turned out worse, isn’t that possible?”
– It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini
Goodreads | Amazon | Book Depository

I’ve been wanting to read this book for years, and finally picked up a copy. Craig Gilner checks himself into a psychiatric hospital after a suicidal episode, and ends up in the adult ward while the teen ward undergoes renovations.  It’s a light, funny but moving story of Craig finally confronting his anxieties. The almost witty, self-degrading style got a few laughs out of me,

The story was written by Ned Vizzini who himself spent time in a psychiatric hospital and sadly committed suicide after losing his own battle with depression in December 2013.
