Why I got it:
I haven’t done my research on Jesse Andrews yet, but I do know that he is/was a filmmaker. I basically picked up this book because of the cover. It really stuck out to me and I just absolutely love it so so much. Once I got past the cover I noticed the title was very bizarre and I just couldn’t stop myself from buying the book. I really hope this book becomes more than just a “cancer book” because I believe it can be more than that.
Description from Online:
Up until senior year, Greg has maintained total social invisibility. He only has one friend, Earl, and together they spend their time—when not playing video games and avoiding Earl’s terrifying brothers— making movies, their own versions of Coppola and Herzog cult classics. Greg would be the first one to tell you his movies are f*@$ing terrible, but he and Earl don’t make them for other people. Until Rachel.
Rachel has leukemia, and Greg’s mom gets the genius idea that Greg should befriend her. Against his better judgment and despite his extreme awkwardness, he does. When Rachel decides to stop treatment, Greg and Earl must abandon invisibility and make a stand. It’s a hilarious, outrageous, and truthful look at death and high school by a prodigiously talented debut author
