Fifteen-year-old Jason has fallen upon bad times—his mother has died and his father has succumbed to mental illness. As he tries to hold his crazy father and their crumbling home together, Jason relies on a host of imaginary friends for guidance as he stumbles along trying not to draw attention to his father’s deteriorating condition.

Both heartbreaking and funny, CRAZY lives up to the intense and compelling characters Han Nolan is praised for. As Jason himself teeters on the edge of insanity, Nolan uncovers the clever coping system he develops for himself and throws him a lifeline in the guise of friendship.

    Jason hears little voices in his head. But he doesn't think he's going crazy because he knows the voices aren't real. They're just like a little tv show cast in his head, commenting on his life. But Jason's dad really IS crazy, and Jason has had a rough time taking care of him by himself after his mother died. At a school support group, he finally finds the courage to open up about everything tumbling around in his life, and it's very beneficial for him. I encourage readers who are going through hard times to try this book, as it's very easy to relate to his struggles, and a good way to find solutions to them!
