A smart, funny, poignant, very modern autobiographical coming-of-age novel, written when the author was sixteen years old. Like Catcher in the Rye, Crazy appeals to the teenager in us all.
Benni himself is partially paralyzed and a serial failure (he's been kicked out of four boarding schools in his short life and has just entered his fifth). So he's a little odd, but he's cool and he finds other strange boys to hang with. Together they set out to experience what they can: girls, booze, sex, philosophy, drugs, sex, books, music, sex–pretty much everything whatever. And Benni lets us in on "the crazy life" he figures is the only way to deal with the crazy world.

"Entertaining...The characters are likable and also quite believable.... Lebert's knowing yet ingenuous voice and the flatness of his exposition give character to his tale."
-- Publishers Weekly
An amazing debut: a fast, funny, wry autobiographical coming-of-age novel by a sixteen-year-old ? a runaway bestseller in Germany that is causing excitement everywhere.
"Hi folks, my name is Benjamin Lebert, I'm sixteen, and I'm a cripple."
This is the narrator introducing himself to his class on his first day at a remedial boarding school (he's been thrown out of four schools already), where he's trying to pass ninth grade and maybe even graduate from high school. However, most of his education takes place after hours: with five other kids who rapidly become a gang of friends, Benni is hot on the trail of the Secret of Life ? which involves everything from raids on the girls' dorm, booze, first sex, and rock 'n' roll to going out on the sly to a Munich strip club.
Fresh, full of energy, unsparingly self-aware, here is a teenager learning about what friends are, what girls are, how you make the best of the hand you've been dealt, and how you find your way in a crazy world by just being your crazy self.
