Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

This book is where Greg documents what happened to him during his senior year when his mother forces him to socialise with his sort-of ex-girlfriend Rachel, who has just been diagnosed with leukaemia. There was no soppy professing of undying love or magical journeys; it was just teenagers being teenagers in hard circumstances. One thing I loved about Me and Earl was the way it completely refused to live up to stereotypes. Whereas most books, especially YA, about similar circumstances would have made it melodramatic and cringe worthy, Andrews seemed to underplay everything. As funny as this book is, it is also very, very sad.

Greg tries to stay anonymous and unseen in high-school, never associating himself with any group in particular. His one friend is a vertically-challenged, rage-filled boy called Earl and the only thing the two boys have in common is their love of terrible movies - which they attempt to re-create with a hand held camera. When Greg learns that Rachel, a girl he accidentally started going out with when he was 12, is dying of leukaemia, his small friendship circle is suddenly doubled in size. Forced to visit Rachel by his overbearing mother, Greg realises he has a real talent for making her laugh, and that at long last he and Earl may have found a super-fan for their movies. This surprising gem is at once moving and hilarious.

The novel includes quite a bit of information about leukemia symptoms and treatments, contemporary films and filmmaking, and high school culture. Though in many ways the relationship upsets his "invisible" life just as much as he fears, Rachel's influence also moves Greg and helps propel him down a more productive path.

The novel was released in hardcover by Amulet Books on March 1, , and in paperback on May 7, Greg Gaines is a senior at Benson High School. A social loner, he navigates high school life by gaining everyone's acquaintance but staying clear of any particular clique. His only real friend is Earl Jackson, though Greg will only cautiously claim that they are coworkers. Greg and Earl, a fellow student from a poor and broken family, have been friends since childhood. The two spend most of their time making films together.

These notes were contributed by members of the GradeSaver community. Whatever the opposite of a social butterfly is, Greg Gaines is that; a senior at Benson High School, he survives by becoming acquaintances with everybody, and friends with nobody. He avoids becoming a member of a social clique yet remains on friendly terms with all of them. He has an actual real friend, called Earl , but he doesn't really publicly claim the friendship. He tentatively terms them "co-workers".
