Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

Greg Gaines is the last master of high school espionage, able to disappear at will into any social environment. He has only one friend, Earl, and together they spend their time making movies, their own incomprehensible versions of Coppola and Herzog cult classics.

Until Greg’s mother forces him to rekindle his childhood friendship with Rachel.

Rachel has been diagnosed with leukemia—-cue extreme adolescent awkwardness—-but a parental mandate has been issued and must be obeyed. When Rachel stops treatment, Greg and Earl decide the thing to do is to make a film for her, which turns into the Worst Film Ever Made and becomes a turning point in each of their lives.

And all at once Greg must abandon invisibility and stand in the spotlight.

Don't worry ladies, this is a FUNNY book, it won't make you cry unless they are tears from laughter (but I can't guarantee anything) :)

    I may or may not be there tonight I woke up not feeling well. I will see how I feel later before I make my final decision.

    Hey everyone! I used to participate in this group when it first started. I fell off the face of the earth after going through personal tragedies and the aftermath. I hope you'll have me back. I look forward to discussing this book with you all!
