This was a fantastic book. It was very well written and the characters were very believable. I loved Lachlan and think Dave is a definite runner in the worst ex boyfriends in the world catagory. I can't wait for the next one. A real tear jerker.

I really enjoyed this book it was new adult but felt fresh and enticing. I liked the shade of darkness that hung over it maybe that sounds weird but Kate has a lot of things hovering over her keeping her out of the sun - her dad being a big one and her boyfriend urgh i did not like him.It was also quite emotional, and i loved Lachlan

Reviewer: Bex
Rating: 4.5 out of 5
Disclosure: This ebook was provided by the author in exchange for an HONEST and not necessarily positive review.

From the opening chapter, the author caught my interest by the creation and voice of her main character Kate. There was something so very real and truly human about her character that I was drawn to her inner dilemma immediately. It became clear, very early on, that Kate was a character I could believe in and readily follow.

Lauren McKellar has created a main character who journeys through an array of situations and challenges. Along her journey, it was a pleasure to watch Kate take shape and grow. Alongside her own personal growth, the relationships she develops ensured this story became a captivating and heartbreaking read.

It has been a while since I read a YA piece of fiction which deals with reality, with the added bonus of self-discovery and sweet love. The Problem With Crazy is an uplifting albeit devastating read. I cried several times, yet finished the book feeling better for reading it.

HASH(0x8c8a5ce4) out of 5 stars Heartwrenching and beautiful 15 Mar. 2014
By Cass - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Problem With Crazy blew me away. I stayed up till after midnight -- on a work night, no less -- thinking "just one more chapter". It's such an emotional rollercoaster of a book. Right from the first chapter, Kate, our main character, is left reeling with the sudden changes to her life. Graduation. Her drunk, absentee father turning up and embarrassing her. Discovering that he has Huntington's Disease, and that she might have it too.

Her boyfriend's, ah, less-than-stellar reaction to the news.

Dave. Ah, Dave. I don't think I've ever hated a character as much as I hate Kate's boyfriend, a wannabe rockstar and lead singer of Dave & the Glories. Even before Dave finds out about Kate's potential illness it's clear he's a jerk, dismissing Kate's organising of the band's tour as "making a couple of phone calls", when clearly she'd worked her butt off. I thought after the way he broke up with her he couldn't sink any lower.

But he did.

I won't say how due to spoilers, but I was reading this on my Kindle and had to physically restrain myself from throwing it across the room. (That scene was one of the THREE TIMES times I cried reading this book.)

On the other hand, there are some truly wonderful characters, including Lachlan -- probably the sweetest book boyfriend ever -- Stacey, and even Kate's dad, as ill as he is. His neurodegenerative disease actually gives him a much more cheerful outlook on life, something that Kate and her mother slowly come to appreciate. Between Lachlan and her dad, Kate learns to live in the moment and appreciate what's happening now rather than being terrified of the future.

I have all of the love for this book.

HASH(0x8c8a5f30) out of 5 stars Heart breaking, life affirming, one of my all time favorites 22 April 2014
By Kristine: Glass Paper Ink Bookblog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying that I have been trying to write this review for weeks, I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Lauren McKeller at my very first author signing event in March and she is without a doubt one of the funniest, sweetest people I have had the pleasure to meet. I had The Problem With Crazy sitting on my kindle for a little while, I picked up my signed paperback copy at the event and I felt like it was staring at me, goading me to pick it up and finally dig in. When I finally had a day off, I picked it up and started the journey, the experience that is The Problem With Crazy, in the effort of having full disclosure I was warned about how life changing McKeller's story was, how life changing it is, how I needed tissues, and possible a bottle of wine at the ready.

So what's it about, I warn you, I'm going to be deliberately vague because you need to experience this story as blind as possible. Kate has her life planned out, but what do you do when your perfect existence, everything you took for granted - boyfriend, family, career aspirations, health all come crashing down around her, leaving her lost, scared and alone, with no light and the end of the tunnel?

Lauren weaves a story of harrowing pain and tragedy, a world so dark at times that it left me as the reader feeling alone and distraught. The Problem With Crazy is a story that despite absolutely destroying me, in ways I didn't even know was possible, ultimately healed me, it's message, life affirming. Weeks on and I can't stop thinking about McKeller's words, her characters, the world she created. Breath taking is the only way I can find to describe the sheer beauty of TPWC.

HASH(0x8c8a5ef4) out of 5 stars emotional journey 26 May 2014
By Roberta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
OMG, what a fantastic read! Wow. I'm still dumbfounded, even though I finished this book last night.
I have to admit I was a little wary when I started the book for two reasons: it's not often I get hooked by a YA/NA story and the other reason being the author is also my editor. So what if I didn't like the book? How would I tell her the reason for my 2 star rating? Turns out these were all unfounded fears because this book blew my mind.
I got immediately sucked into the story and couldn't let go. I just couldn't put it down, not even when I started crying, fat, ugly tears and sobs. Seriously, I was sobbing! The story struck a chord and it tugged at my heartstrings. It's such a powerful and emotional journey, that I still haven't been able to get over it.
There is a part (and I won't say what, otherwise I'll spoil the fun) where I had to stop to send a message to the author telling her I was thinking about unfriending her-but even then, I couldn't stop reading. Even through the tears and the sobs I still managed to smile at the sweetness of the story.
I love Kate. I haven't loved a teenager heroine in a book since Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. I have to say Kate has definitely earned the top spot in my best teenager character chart. She's fantastic. Funny, sweet, strong and fragile at the same time. She's the person I'd like to have been when I was eighteen.
Dave, Kate's boyfriend, is the perfect jerk, and Lauren managed to depict him perfectly. I found myself wanting to slap him every time he waltzed back into the story.
Lachlan. Well. Lachlan. I guess no words would ever describe how I feel for him. He's simply ADORABLE. And that's not even enough.
Kate and Lachlan's has to be THE cutest meet-cute in history. I loved it and laughed like an idiot, grateful for the privacy of my room. And afterwards it was just "aw" and then "lol" and "aw" again and "lol" and, well you get the picture. I just can't wait to read the sequel!
If you're looking for an intense story, with some strong themes and equally strong emotions that will touch your heart, squeeze it and never let go, well, this is the story for you.
But first be sure to follow these steps:
-lock your door and leave the whole world outside;
-unplug your phone and mobile;
-bring enough food and drinks so you won't have to leave your reading nook;
-stock up on Kleenex. Lots of them.

HASH(0x8c6de708) out of 5 stars I actually really liked the story line 10 Mar. 2015
By A Book A Day - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I actually really liked the story line, but I just couldn't get into the book. The writing was forced and the fringe characters drew me in more than the main characters. It touches on a very sensitive subject and it really had the potential to be a good book, unfortunately it just didn't make it there for me.
