Up until senior year, Greg has maintained total social invisibility. He only has one friend, Earl, and together they spend their time—when not playing video games and avoiding Earl’s terrifying brothers— making movies, their own versions of Coppola and Herzog cult classics. Greg would be the first one to tell you his movies are f*@$ing terrible, but he and Earl don’t make them for other people. Until Rachel. Rachel has leukemia, and Greg’s mom gets the genius idea that Greg should befriend her. Against his better judgment and despite his extreme awkwardness, he does. When Rachel decides to stop treatment, Greg and Earl make her a movie, and Greg must abandon invisibility and make a stand. It’s a hilarious, outrageous, and truthful look at death and high school by a prodigiously talented debut author.

This book is what I wanted The Fault in Our Stars to be. It's infinitely superior in pretty much every way. No insta-love, no pompous, maudlin speeches that no real teen would ever utter in seriousness, no hot guys being forgiven for creepy staring because they're hot, and no kissing in Anne Frank'...

Well... that was weird.So have you read The Fault in Our Stars? This is the opposite.This book is what appears to be basically a parody of The Fault in Our Stars, or at least a YA book of the cancer variety. As a parody it does the exact opposite of everything including:- a shallow main character wh...

3.0 Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
When I heard that this is going to be turned into a movie showing this September, I scrambled to read this. Also, it was in my TBR for a long time now, so.. two birds with one stone.Having read TFIOS, which I liked, I was prepared to have a dose of reality. While TFIOS was good, I agree that it pain...

** 3.5 stars**I have mixed feeling about this book. Parts of this book are hilarious, while other parts I don't really get the point of. The ending disappointed me. I thought it was just thrown together. I wanted to read this book before I found out that it was going to be a movie, but knowing that ...
