This book follows the story of teenager Craig Gilner. He wants to succeed but nearly kills himself over it. The book follows his journey with his mental health and all the ups and downs along the way. To me, the book was in a way very relatable, which I personally always love in a book. The way that Craig reacted to situations and simply the things he struggled with as a teen, is very compelling and I sort of saw myself in him a little bit, as I am also a teenager. Books like this, especially with the aspect of mental health, always make me reflect and I love when books start to put me in a new perspective and outlook on life. I couldn’t be more happy with how the book was written by Vizzini, especially because the ending was a personal favorite of mine. I rate this book a good 5/5, I absolutely loved it!
