me trying to bring back the thumbs up Get Ned to speak at your school! Hey. My name is Ned Vizzini, and I'm a writer. (Hi Ned.)

It's February 2002 and I'm 20 years old right now; it's been 1 year, 4 months since I put out my first book, called Teen Angst? Naaah... and published by Free Spirit Publishing.

The book collects my funny and, uh, touching stories about high school: 29 tales of dorky backpacks, prom limos, and Magic cards that I wrote between the ages of 15 and 18.


Lots of people like the book; if you're one of them, feel free to send me mail. If you're new, I'll start you off with a Teen Angst? Naaah... clip:
