It's Kind of a Funny Story

The title says it all! It's Kind of a Funny Story, is kind of a funny story. We see life through Craig Gilner's point of view. This 15 year old boy likes to party with his friends, but they don't know how suicidal he really is. One night, Craig calls the suicide hotline and they convince him to check into a hospital. They place him in the adult portion of a mental hospital, along with another 15 year old girl with cuts on her face. In the hospital, Craig strikes up friendships with just about everyone there. They all adore him and his brain maps. He discovers how easy life is within the hospital. There are no "Tentacles" or worries. It's as if the outside would never really existed. Will Craig ever get the major "Shift" or will he just give into his suicidal thoughts? Read It's Kind of a Funny Story to find out. :)

"Every day for the rest of my life I’ll remember my wonderful friend because he jumped, but his readers — including millions of them not yet born — will remember him because he soared." -Marty Beckerman

Rest in Peace
