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.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews – review

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. So although I laughed constantly throughout this book at the end I cried floods of tears. Everyone should read this book.

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.
