Comedic look at friendship, high school, and cancer

This book is hilarious and depicts high school spot on! It was good and I throughly enjoyed it(red it within one afternoon). CONTENT: Violence: one fistfight Sex: crude humor typical of two males, jokes about erections, masturbation, porn, homosexuality, lesbians, semen, sex, and oral sex Langauge: pretty salty compared to other YA tiles: Usages of f**k and motherf**k, c**k, t*t, p*ssy, shit, b*tch, ass, d*ck, damn, he'll, n*gger, and other uses of these words combined together. Drugs: two teens accidently get high MY RATING: R- for langauge

I laughed the entire time

a little too much swearing for me, but I laughed so hard throughout the entire book. Greg is the funniest antihero ever. I loved it when they accidentally got high!

The movie is much better // 2.5 stars

This book was very disappointing. Having seen the movie before I was expecting the book to be good but it was kind of annoying. Yes some parts were funny but the main thing that really annoyed me was the way that Greg always says stuff like 'if you're still reading this horrible book' or 'this book is so repulsive'. He literally says it all the time and it was just really unnecessary. Also what annoyed me was the part where *SPOILER* Rachel dies *SPOILER* was barely even discussed. Okay I know that it was shown that Greg was more doing the things for himself and in a sense didn't really care about Rachel but still to just say that he knew he wouldn't see her again to show what happened was just so underwhelming. The movie portrayed this scene much better. The one thing that is good about the book is the boy and girl don't get together. There is a lot of swearing in this book, sexual references but also good messages.

me earl and the dying girl

The book i read is called Me, Earl, and the dying girl by Jesse Andrews. This book was about guys named Greg and Earl. They were best friends, they think life sucked. That's basically what every teen thinks. There lives get a little more interesting when greg's ex/ neighbor Rachel is diagnosed with leukemia. The central idea was about trying to hang out with Rachel a lot before she gets worst. Rachel loves the films that Earl and Greg make, so they made a video in her honor because she's the only one that likes them. The central theme was '' life is too short to not have fun and make memories''. That's the theme because that's is what there trying to do with rachel before this gets worst. I thought this book was really good because I can relate to this. This may relate to most teens because it's about life and how teens feel. I would recommend it for teens because this is basically about highschool and life.
