It’s okay to love me, Joey. But don’t be in love with me.

New York, 1941. Joey El Bueno is just a smart-aleck kid, confounding the nuns and bullies at St. Stephen’s School on East 28th Street, when he first meets Jane Bent, a freckle-faced girl with red pigtails and yellow smiley-face barrettes, who seems to know him better than he knows himself. A magical afternoon at the movies, watching Carey Grant in Gunga Din, is the beginning of a puzzling friendship that soon leaves Joey baffled and bewildered.

Jane is like nobody he has ever met. She comes and goes at will, nobody else seems to have heard of her, and is it true that she once levitated six feet off the ground at the refreshment counter of the old Superior movie house on Third Avenue? Joey, an avid reader of pulp magazines and comic books, is no stranger to amazing stories, but Jane is a bewitching enigma that keeps him guessing for the rest of his life—until, finally, it all makes sense.

Rich with the warmth of a bygone era, Crazy captures both the giddy craziness of youth and the sublime possibilities of existence.

    " Short and sweet, but I guess the ending way to quickly.

    Also loved the Gunga Din and The Temple of Gold reference. "

    " I picked this up on the new shelf at the library. It was true to the title--crazy. Maybe (I don't know) the end made it worth the time. "

    " Could easily have been a good book, in the hands of an author who understands what the word subtle means. "

    " Although it's only a short book, I didn't think it was worth finishing. Very dis-jointed.
