Craig is a typical fifteen year old boy. He thinks about girls and plays video games and goes to school. But his high school in Manhattan NY, is more challenging than most other high schools around. It's specifically for kids who excel in school. Craig worked really hard to get into the school, but after he makes it in, he starts to crumble under the pressure. He begins to become depressed and starts thinking about killing himself. One night, he decides to kill himself by jumping off of the Brooklyn Bridge, right near his apartment. The events that occur lead him to decide to call a suicide hotline which lead him to checking himself into a mental hospital. During the five days he spends there, he begins to question why it's so important to excel in such a difficult school rather than pursue his true passion and excel at something he's actually really talented at: Drawing.

Reaaaaaaly good series - I highly reccommend it. Awesome. A brief summary, if I may... it starts with a girl in ripped clothes on the streets of Tokyo who knows only her name. As the story goes on (it takes up only three books) the girl's memories are unclouded, leading to much drama and exitement!

Okay: this book is 90 pages or less and at the end it just makes you say, "WHAT THE HECK!!!" But seriously, it's a 'pull-your-hair-out' ending. Personally I dont think you should read this last book -- it'll just keep you up at night wondering. But that's just me. It was a really good series and I heard there's another one maybe continuing the last book. I hope.
