Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A tug at your heart sad and humorous book (because Greg has a very funny way of looking at things and talking to people)about friendship and life. Greg Gaines is a comedian who loves to think he hasn't let anyone become his friend and he is okay with that...but he does have a sort of friend, Earl who is just as hysterical as Greg with his outlook on life and his comments (some of them nasty) and they both enjoy making sub par films. Rachel is a girl who used to like Greg in middle school and now has cancer and it is her mom and Greg's mom who "force" him to hang out with her (he hasn't really talked to her in years). I loved Greg's family, his teachers and his constant comments to the reader about putting this poorly written book down and he wouldn't hold it against you. There are lots of funny lists, bad jokes but this book will make you laugh, laugh, laugh but you will also cry for Greg and Earl as they lose one of their friends.
