“Everybody knows what 15-year-old Jeff did, but only he knows why. After being sent to a psychiatric ward, he struggles to convince the entire floor he doesn't belong there. Only sessions with Dr. 'Cat Poop' will tell if he belongs with the rest of the 'nuts.'”
— Tori Thompson, Booksmart, Morgan Hill, CA

Description


An unforgettable coming of age novel for fans of 13 Reasons Why, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Fifteen-year-old Jeff wakes up on New Year’s Day to find himself in the hospital—specifically, in the psychiatric ward. Despite the bandages on his wrists, he’s positive this is all some huge mistake. Jeff is perfectly fine, perfectly normal; not like the other kids in the hospital with him.

But over the course of the next forty-five days, Jeff begins to understand why he ended up here—and realizes he has more in common with the other kids than he thought.
