It's Kind of a Funny Story (Film Tie-in) [Paperback] [Kindle]
August 31, 2010
The film tie-in edition of It's Kind of a Funny Story features a brain-map title page inspired by the art in the book and the original cover. It looks something like this, an image that Focus Features provided to Hyperion Books in summer 2010:
For more about the art from the film, see here: Don't Trip..Yet: Visual: It's Kind of a Funny Story.
Thanks to everyone who has made this edition possible, including everybody at Hyperion Books, Focus Features, and all readers old and new.
On September 24, 2010, the book was released for the Amazon Kindle with this cover.

Be More Chill (US) [Paperback]
September 14, 2005
Be More Chill is the story of a guy in high school who gets a pill that makes him cool. The pill is called a "squip"--it's actually a quantum computer that lives in your brain and gives you real-time social advice. The kid is named Jeremy Heere.
"A fresh, spontaneous and original voice. It's fun, wacky, outrageous. I just couldn't stop reading."
-- Judy Blume
Be More Chill was the first young adult book ever selected for the Today Show Book Club:
For more about the squip campaign that ran from 2004-2005 to support the book, watch the squip video (warning: it may take a while to load).
