    One thought on “Crazy”

    1. 4.5.Well, this one did a pretty good job of making me a wreck Talk about an intense, completely realistic and painfully honest look at bipolar disorder It hit way close to home on a number of levels.Connor and Isabel met at camp, and they continued their close friendship via email after it ended Connor and Isabel s relationship is loving and destructive They re very close and very far apart, and each of their emails to one another gives both of these sides They abuse each other and they apologiz [...]

    2. This book hit so close to home I can t imagine NOT reviewing it 4.5 stars and a definite reread.Review to come Before Reading For some reason, this book sounds like it describes every single relationship I ve been in.To read Check.

    3. This book did a number on me So it s about Connor and it s about Izzy and it s about this THING between the two of them It s about mutual destruction, budding love, caring, misunderstandings, understanding, mental illness, worry, and hope.And when you read a book that is, essentially YourLife.txt, it becomes hard to objectively review it There are a number of passages in this book that are put so perfectly, that hit so close, so hard, that I had to put the book in my freezer for a while.Seeing y [...]

    4. Note I received this as an ARC from SS Galley Grab.Initial reaction Another book that kept me up to the wee hours of the morning to read through It was worth every moment I loved the story, even if there were parts of the story that I didn t care for That may not make sense in my sleep deprived brain I ll try to explain it tomorrow.Full Review Crazy is the first book I ve ever read from Amy Reed, and what a story to start out with For such a difficult subject matter, this book hits the nail on [...]

    5. Crazy is a fast paced, beautiful, exhilarating ride.I started bawling three quarters through this story definitely touched me.It felt painfully real, and I couldn t keep my eyes off the pages I was stuck in the story, though it did take 50 pages to get into it possibly due to the style of writing I read most of it in 5 hours it s a very quick book and I was hooked the whole time.The characters, the way they wrote it felt so realistic They swore, they had outbursts, they got angry because they re [...]

    6. Isabel Izzy and Connor met at summer camp where they were counselors They struck up a friendship that continued when they returned to their homes Bainbridge Island Connor and Seattle s Capitol Hill Although Puget Sound separates them e mail keeps their relationship alive Told in alternating messages, the reader learns of their growing relationship and of Izzy s descent into mental illness.Within the first 12 pages, there s a lot of profanity and a very clear although not graphic and detailed des [...]

    7. Well to start off this book had me thinking.ok it s cool how they stay in touch after summer camp via email Then as I keep reading the emails from Isabel made me say to myself maybe I m just a little to old to be reading this book My patience was running thin I was thinking this chick is really getting on my nerves,her thoughts seem to be all over the place.i was getting to a point when I was like ok just run and jump out the window bc I m getting tired of u That was really mean of me but I m gl [...]

    8. SPOILER ALERTMy god, what an amazing book I loved Beautiful and Clean, and I think I like Crazy the best so far although I m the kind of person who s favourite book is whatever they just finished, so that isn t the most reliable opinion I finished it within a day mostly during classwhoops , because it was amazing and addicting and insane and beautiful It was good at the beginning, but it didn t get exciting and crazy for me until the middle end You read it, and it s good, and I just had this imp [...]

    9. I have a few favorite authors I have authors whose books I read with the expectation that they ll be good I have authors whose books I ll pick up just because that author s name is on the front cover So yeah, I have favorites.What I don t have are authors who get 5 5 ratings across the board I m a fairly picky reader I don t dish out full marks on a whim If a book gets a 5 5 rating, that basically means I want to fall down and worship it.Amy Reed is an anomaly in my curmudgeonly reading career H [...]

    10. When this book started I didn t know what I was going to think about it The language is a little rough The characters a little rough around the edges But then I began to get to know Connor and Izzy and connect to them Connor has his loving life with his caring mother, but he s in love with Izzy who s not in love with him Izzy in her life where it seems no one loves her at least by the way she tells it They are different and yet they are the same, they are two teenagers trying to feel their way t [...]

    11. So despite the fact that some people are too immature and judgmental to see Amy Reed s talent at writing a story that very clearly and accurately depicts a young girl suffering from depression and bipolar disorder, I can say that I saw it and appreciate how good this book is To read snippets of the reviews of this book is kinda brutal some people seem to think that teenagers can t be depressed because it really just means they re spoiled brats who complain all the time and are self centered Well [...]

    12. I have never cried so hard from a book before Ever.This book was fantastic, It is difficult to find words to properly explain my feelings after reading this book.The emotion is so raw and realistic, you don t have to be dealing with BPD to relate to some of Isabel s feelings and thoughts I loved this book for so many reasons, the story and the writing was stunning A big part of this story that I loved so much was the mental illness incorporation, because the mental illness was not romanticized, [...]

    13. If the reader is unfamiliar with bipolar disorder or depression, it is tempting to attribute Izzy s early mood swings as being products of her environment As someone whose bipolar disorder also onset in my teenage years, I can appreciate that this nuance may have been Reed s intention Bipolar disorders and depression often go undiagnosed in children and teenagers until something or a string of somethings severe Read contributor L.D Lewis full review at Disability in Kidlit.

    14. I m not sure how to review this I picked it up because it was about bipolar disorder, and I have a sneaking suspicion that that s what my own craziness is developing into I decided to start reading it this afternoon as a distraction from the death of my rabbit s babies I wanted insight on what BD was like, and this book delivered that It didn t try to paint it as a pretty picture It was brutally honest And I understand so much of how Iz felt that it hurts I don t normally read YA contemporary, b [...]

    15. This was good Thoroughly enjoyed it.I also really loved the format of the book and how it was written completely through back and forth emails.

    16. Axis 1 CharactersI didn t particularly like either Connor or Isabel, especially for the first half Isabel was very annoying in some ways she s quite self centered and melodramatic I suspect that these are aspects of her personality regardless, but that her bipolar disorder intensifies them She s also creative, and there appears to be some connection between creativity and manic episodes I thought the difference between normal creativity and manic inspired creativity was actually illustrated quit [...]

    17. Find the original review and at Jellyfish Reads Actual rating 4.5 starsCrazy is about Isabel and Connor, two teenagers who meet when they re working at a summer camp together The book begins in September, after summer has ended and they have gone their separate ways It begins with an email from Connor.This story is told mostly through emails There s some variation on the format later on in the book, but it really is just mostly emails And I loved it I loved this format so much Connor and Izzy b [...]

    18. Okay, so if you re at all familiar with my blog, you ll know this book must have been hand picked for me Bipolar disease runs in my family with three out of the four of us having it in my immediate family I could relate to Izzy so well, Amy Reed could have interviewed me I was always too sensitive or everyone else feels that way too When you ve never known normal, how do you know you re sick My first impression of this book was that it was a great snapshot into showing the highs and lows of an u [...]

    19. When I sat down to read this book, I was very nervous Well, not really at first At first, I saw the cover and thought that it would be pretty good But then I saw the format of this book The format of this book is composed of instant messages, letters, emails, and much I get pretty nervous around these books You ask why They are so hard to keep up with It s like one second we re a boy, then we re a girl, then we re a cat posing as a human Okay, maybe the cat thing was a little overdramatic But i [...]

    20. There is no way I m going to manage to be rational about this book There isn t Like Izzy, I have undiagnosed bipolar disorder or, at the very least, cyclothymia I ve probably always had it, but it hasn t been until the last few years where it s become truly noticeable and an actual problem Like Izzy, I go through spells where I m so manic that I have trouble sleeping and can go for hours focusing on one specific thing Then I crash into a depressive episode where I have trouble even getting out o [...]

    21. Meeeeeeeh It was so disappointing.First off, I didn t know the whole book was written in e mails and it really bothered me, as soon as I started reading It felt weird and artificial and kinda childish And unfortunately, the characters didn t help The major problem I had with this book was characterization John Green, anyone The guy, Connor, is soft, innocent, funny, nice, calm, responsible and he even has a loser sidekick Btw, Connor s compared to Michael Cera in the book, and that s totally how [...]

    22. Where do I begin with my utter distaste for this book Why did I attempt to read Amy Reed after my horrible experience with Beautiful In all honesty, I blame my own stupidity for trying Reed seems to believe that she understands the teenage struggle and the changes kids go through during these years Strike that Reed completely understands what it s like to be a teenager She sees teens for exactly what they are egotistical, confused, moralistic roller coasters, and good at making mountains out of [...]

    23. Expected release date June 12th, 2012Rating 3.5 out of 5Connor knows that Izzy will never fall in love with him the way he s fallen for her But somehow he s been let into her crazy, exhilarating world and become her closest confidante But the closer they get, the Connor realizes that Izzy s highs are too high and her lows are too low And the frenetic energy that makes her shine is starting to push her into a much darker place As Izzy s behavior gets increasingly erratic and self destructive, Co [...]

    24. Amy Reed s third novel Crazy is by far my favorite of her books Connor and Izzy meet during the summer while working at a kid s camp and when they return to their homes not far from each other, but separated from a body of water, they decide to keep in touch Through a series of emails, IM s and a few journal entries because Izzy WILL NOT talk on the telephone , we see how their friendship continues to grow It is clear from almost the very beginning that Connor loves Izzy even when he asks her ab [...]

    25. Crazy is written almost entirely in emails and IM messages, which I didn t know before starting this book And I m not sure how I feel about that It s an original idea, and it gives us a unique insight into Connor and Izzy s relationship I was worried this format would mean we wouldn t get to know the characters enough in how they really think, since we don t know whether they re being honest or whether they re telling the other person everything But that part works pretty well Connor and Izzy ar [...]

    26. Check out my other book reviews on my blog if you like this one meridianreviews I m disappointed to say this is the first book since I ve started my blog that I have been unable to finish, but I m done trying to force myself to read this So this book is unrated, and will remain so indefinitely.Crazy by Amy Reed promises an insight into manic depression from the point of view of a teenage boy in love with a girl who exhibits the symptoms It could have been a very engaging book, highlighting the s [...]

    27. I very rarely give out 5 stars, but this book Oh my GOD, this book I don t even know if I can articulate my feelings properly, but I m going to try So this is a hauntingly accurate portrayal of bipolar disorder and how quickly you surrender to it, how frighteningly FAST it consumes you, strangles you, changes you into a person no longer recognizable by those around you The truth is that mental illnesses are NOT beautiful They are not to be worn like a mask, they are not to be romanticized, they [...]

    28. Grade C One Word UnevenCRAZY can best be described as a tale of two halves The first, a dreary one star setup for a a story of a teen s crush on a camp friend as she descends into bipolar hell Told primarily in email between Connor, the nerdy, outcast and Izzy, the over the top angsty artist He s needy and super supportive , she s slowly slipping into deep depression before exploding into often unkind, self destructive mania He pushes, she pulls away.The first 51%, before Izzy s initial manic ep [...]

    29. If you ve been around me at all lately, you ve probably heard me mention Amy Reed at least a few times This woman is an amazing author She doesn t hold back and writes with an intensity and honesty that is rarely seen She s probably one of my favorite authors, so when I saw this book come out, I knew I needed it immediately Crazy was so good that I devoured it in two days.Crazy is written in a series of emails between two teenagers, Connor and Isabel Izzy, who met at summer camp At first, Izzy s [...]
