I get that maybe this is supposed to be progressive, and I see why people praise it, but I don't think that "character who tried to kill himself and won't admit why gets raped at least twice and finally admits that he tried to kill himself because he's gay" is necessarily the greatest plot twist in the world.

I don't know. I feel like all depictions of people in mental health facilities for YA audiences show the person as extremely resistant to treatment. Always in the same snarky way, too. It was decent. I would definitely recommend it for teenagers who like that sort of thing. But it wasn't really one of those YA books that transcends the classification. ( )

I truly enjoyed this book up until around half way through. (Warning: Spoilers.) I suspected Jeff’s sexuality by then, but I felt that what happened with Rankin was very... jarring. It felt like it went from being a boy in a psychiatric hospital to a kid being convinced to do sexual acts before they’re really ready. Perhaps I also just feel weird and uncomfortable because it felt like Jeff was being pushed into doing these things rather than doing them on his own. I still enjoyed the book, for the most part. It just didn’t feel like the transition from it being about him trying to commit suicide to him finding out he’s gay was all that smooth. I’ve seen some other reviews mention it has a lot of ableist language, and it does, but that bothered me less simply because it seemed like things a teenage boy would say, especially when this book was first published.

One day 15-year-old Jeff wakes up in a hospital, in a psychiatric ward. Everybody tells him that he tried to kill himself, but he’s pretty sure that it’s a really huge mistake. He tries to convince his psychiatrist Dr. Katzrupus - also known as Cat Poop - that he is normal and this is not where he should be. Unfortunately for Jeff he will stay in the hospital for 45 days, which irritates him more than anything else.
But with each new day something changes in Jeff.. If in the beginning he was a sarcastic, sharp teenager of deft tongue, in the end he is a grown-up youth who knows who he really is.
When I started reading this book (and it was only yesterday) I thought that was a story about suicide and how to deal with it. But I was wrong - it’s also a story about being yourself, accepting who you really are.
In spite of all the seriousness of story it is a really funny book. It tells us all the hardest things in a light-hearted manner.
The end of the book was the hardest to read. After Jeff told Dr. Katzrupus why exactly he wanted to kill himself, he needed to tell the truth to his parents. But instead of it he said the most important words in his life to his younger sister Amanda and she didn’t freak out – she just accepted it. I’m glad that he has a sister like this. ( )
