Fifteen-year-old Jeff wakes up on New Year's Day to find himself in the hospital. Make that the psychiatric ward. With the nutjobs. Clearly, this is all a huge mistake. Forget about the bandages on his wrists and the notes on his chart. Forget about his problems with his best friend, Allie, and her boyfriend, Burke. Jeff's perfectly fine, perfectly normal, not like the other kids in the hospital with him. Now they've got problems. But a funny thing happens as his forty-five-day sentence drags on: the crazies start to seem less crazy.

This book is great. It really touches the heart and it was a big plot twister with jeffs homosexuality

Amazing book. I thought it could've delved a little more into Jeff's homosexuality, but overall it was great!

I really liked this book. I wasn't excepting Jeff to be gay. But other then that, this book was amazing.

I'm sorry, but I absolutely HATED this book. Because of the awfulness of it, I could go no further then the first 50 pages. Between those pages, all the character would do was mope and complain. Just reading it myself made me bored to tears and depressed. I would NOT recommend this book to anyone due to the terrible plot.

I thought this book was pretty good. The subtle ways the author speaks to teenagers about why they shouldn't harm themselves and to love who they are as is was quite nice. Overall, it's well worth the read. The book is intended for the teenage audience, but could easily be read by any adult.

Loved this novel!
I couldn't put it down even for a second.
Going into the field of child and youth mental psychology, I found this book very well written as it allows you to see the actual youth's perspective.
