More Spotlight, Please! (6)

This week, I chose something I've heard nearly nothing about:

Crazy by Han Nolan. According to Goodreads, this one's about a fifteen-year-old named Jason. His mother died, and his dad suffers from mental illness, so naturally he's facing tough times. He's trying to keep his crumbling life together with only a host of imaginary friends to help him through, and he refuses to tell anyone real about what's going on. But just as Jason teeters on the edge of insanity, he gets a lifeline in the form of friendship.

First, I'm glad this one has a male POV. I like reading from girls' points of views as well, but sometimes it's nice to have a break. Not many books I've read have had male POVs, and only a few come to mind - like Holly Black's White Cat and anything by John Green. Second, admit it. This book sounds awesome. I love heart-breaking contemporaries, and it's so nice to read a book that focuses on friendship instead of romance.

I've heard this book is quirky in the way it's narrated, so that means it'll either be pulled off really well or sink. I'm hoping it's the first! I've also found from reading reviews that this one's funny as well as wrenching and intense, which makes me even more excited to read it. So, have you heard about this one? Do you plan to read it, or have you already read it?
