Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book was really, really weird.
Good stuff: The main character was likeable in a nerdy way. More loveable, really. Kind of cute and cuddly but dorky, too. He was such a mess, so sloppy and real. Such a normal, kind of pathetic, guy. I really liked him. And Earl, his film-making companion. All the characters were great, really.
And it was sad.
The other stuff: It did get kind of annoying how self-deprecating Greg was. The way he talked to the reader (if you're still reading this...) was annoying.
But overall, this was a pretty great, surprisingly funny and real book.
Recommended for age 16+ due to a LOT of language and extremely crude sexual banter and graphic descriptions.
