This is honestly, very well written. You manage to inject just enough sarcasm and comedy to keep the reader involved and the main character likable. Great Job! Keep up the good work! Although...I must say, a more thorough conclusion would be nice(:

I love this so much! The formatting in the first three chapters were a bit distracting, but I really love the voice of your character, and how well the story seems to flow. Definitely post more. I can't wait. :)

I didn't mean it in a bad way, you're novel is really well written.  Now that I've read it through all the way, your main character is extremely different from the main character of that film/novel.  Yours has a strong voice and a sense of humor, keep it up!

Just from reading the summary and the first page, it feels like the exact same plotline as "It's Kind of a Funny Story," a great novel that was made into a movie last year.

Always think of your audience, Swift advises, and don't baffle them with "obscure terms" and "hard words." Lawyers, surgeons, clergy, and especially academics should avoid using jargon when communicating with outsiders. "I know not how it comes to pass," he says, "that professors in most arts and sciences are generally the worst qualified to explain their meaning to those who are not of their tribe."

Good start! it would help lots if it was formatted!
