Crazy

ebook

A National Book Award–winning author's "moving" novel about "the emotional costs of mental illness, especially on teens forced to parent their own parents" (Booklist, starred review).

His mother has died. His father is going crazy. For fifteen-year-old Jason, the only relief as he tries to hold things together is the group of imaginary friends who offer guidance as he tries not to draw attention to his father's deteriorating condition—or to himself.

But between the traumas of his childhood and the squalor and stress he's dealing with right now, Jason's attempts to remain invisible may not be enough. To find a solution to this very real problem, he just might have to reach out to some very real people . . .

In this compelling story by the author of Dancing on the Edge, Han Nolan "balances weighty subject matter with humor, offering an intelligent portrayal of a boy's slow release of burdens too heavy to carry alone" (Publishers Weekly).
