Vanessa Marie Liers (vanessa_liers) | 76 comments 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.

Karen Barber | 10072 comments Meant to hop on this, but got tied up with some other stuff. Do we need to request a restart?


Karen Barber | 10072 comments Ch1-a rather self-conscious style.


Karen Barber | 10072 comments Up to ch5. An odd style. Jason, like a lot of the kids he's engaging with, seem to have it tough.


Karen Barber | 10072 comments Up to ch10. Good to see the others looking out for Jason, but the absence of adults is rather depressing.


Karen Barber | 10072 comments Forgot to update thread as I was the only one reading it. Depressing inevitability to it, but fascinating read.
