Like many ambitious New York City teenagers, Craig Gilner sees entry into Manhattan's Executive Pre-Professional High School as the ticket to his future. Determined to succeed at life—which means getting into the right high school to get into the right college to get the right job—Craig studies night and day to ace the entrance exam, and does. That's when things start to get crazy. At his new school, Craig realizes that he isn't brilliant compared to the other kids; he's just average, and maybe not even that. He soon sees his once-perfect future crumbling away.

I love this book so much

From a person who’s been in a mental hospital, and who’s been through very similar scenarios to those in this book, this book hit, and it hit HARD. I legitimately cried reading the last page, and I’ve reread that last page again and again whenever I’m really going through it. I finished this book the day I was 6 months out of inpatient, and it gave me the exact same feelings i had that day when i got out. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone

Honestly, I'm a 15 year old who doesn't enjoy reading...at all. But I can across this book one day while I was in target and thought I'd give it a try. I couldn't put it down!! I procrastinated on so many homework assignments just to read this book. My geography teacher yelled at me one day for reading it during an assembly and right when she walked away I started reading it again. I'm so sad I finished it. This book is so amazing! Read it!!
