It's Kind of a Funny Story

It's Kind of a Funny Story - Ned Vizzini Yeoooowch. Pretty painful to read. Most accurate description of depression. Ever. Tentacles and anchors. Cycling and shifting. Accurate accurate accurate. The only time I didn't absolutely identify with the mc was when he was rejoicing over getting to feel up girls, and considering I'm not a sixteen year old boy, that's quite a literary achievement. I particularly loved that his bp was always 120/80 - and what that says about "perfection".
