The Problem With Crazy By Lauren McKellar Blog Hop


The problem with crazy is that crazy, by itself, has no context. It can be good crazy, bad crazy . . . or crazy crazy—like it was when my ex-boyfriend sung about me on the radio.

Eighteen-year-old Kate couldn’t be more excited about finishing high school and spending the summer on tour with her boyfriend's band. Her dad showing up drunk at graduation, however, is not exactly kicking things off on the right foot—and that’s before she finds out about his mystery illness, certain to end in death.

A mystery illness she is likely to inherit.

When your whole life goes from adventure and ecstasy to sad and suicidal, what’s the point? Not knowing who to love, and who to trust . . . where does it end?

The Problem With Crazy is a story about love and life; about overcoming obstacles, choosing to trust, and learning how to make the choices that will change your life forever.

Three reasons you might like The Problem With Crazy

  1. It’s a story that will hopefully GIVE YOU THE FEELS. When I wrote this book, I’d just come off the back of reading The Fault In Our Stars, and Slammed, and a heap of other Young and New Adult books that just made me cry, made me laugh and made me love. I really wanted to try and emulate that and get an emotional reaction out of people. (Note: I am NOT saying I am anywhere near as those authors, or that my book is like theirs. Try is the key word here, people)
  2. While it doesn’t have the usual half-naked man on the cover, there is a cute boy in it. And he’s an artist and runs his own business—so there’s some potential book boyfriend there for you.
  3. You might learn something. No! No, please keep reading! This book deals with a serious illness that affects millions of people worldwide: Huntington’s disease. Don’t worry, it’s not delivered in a textbook fashion, but some key facts about this horrid condition are detailed—and the more people who learn about it, the better.

In honour of the feels, your clue is: LOVE
