It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini

It’s about a kid who wants to kill himself after he is enrolled in a highly competitive high school after he thinks he is going nowhere compared to his peers. He ends up going through a lot of turmoil and getting unhappier as the story progresses with him in a mental hospital, but he ends up finding something that makes him happy and becomes a better person for it. The end is such a release of feel-good emotions that really makes you want to jump start your day at the end of it. Its a good book because it really picks you up and makes you realize how special life is.
