Vizzini’s first book, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, was a semi-autobiographical look at a teenager whose suicide attempt landed him in an institution. His second novel, Be More Chill, has science fictional elements in it and his third novel, The Other Normals, was an alternative fantasy. He also published a collection of essays and was working on a multi-book series with Chris Columbus.
