Craig is a 15 year old boy who is suffering from depression. At the beginning of the novel he checks himself into a hospital hoping to find a reason behind his depression or "get better." What he doesn't count on is that he'll be put in the adult ward, and that he'll meet new friends and find out that there are bigger problems then stress from school. He leaves the hospital with new friends and better relationships with the friends he already had, along with gaining a few stress relieving techniques that work for him. I would recommend this book to my friends and i have already. This book deserves 5 stars and glowing reviews.
“Life's not about feeling better; it's about getting the job done."”Craig's "Soldier in His Head"
“Sometimes I just think depression's one way of coping with the world. Like, some people get drunk, some people do drugs, some people get depressed. Because there's so much stuff out there that you have to do something to deal with it.”Craig
“Hooray for Brooklyn scumbags!”
