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.
