The funniest book you'll ever read about death. It is a universally acknowledged truth that high school sucks. But on the first day of his senior year, Greg Gaines thinks he's figured it out. The answer to the basic existential question: How is it possible to exist in a place that sucks so bad? His strategy: remain at the periphery at all times. Keep an insanely low profile. Make mediocre films with the one person who is even sort of his friend, Earl. This plan works for exactly eight hours. Then Greg's mom forces him to become friends with a girl who has cancer. This brings about the destruction of Greg's entire life. "Mr. Andrews' often hilarious teen dialogue is utterly convincing, and his characters are compelling. Greg's random sense of humor, terrible self-esteem and general lack of self-awareness all ring true. Like many YA authors, Mr. Andrews blends humor and pathos with true skill, but he steers clear of tricky resolutions and overt life lessons, favoring incremental understanding and growth." -Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "One need only look at the chapter titles ('Let's Just Get This Embarrassing Chapter Out of the Way') to know that this is one funny book." -Booklist (starred review) "Though this novel begs inevitable thematic comparisons to John Green's The Fault in Our Stars, it stands on its own in inventiveness, humor and heart." -Kirkus Reviews (starred review) [url] => https://www.hoopladigital.com/title/15019527 [pa] => [subtitle] => A Novel [publisher] => Abrams [purchaseModel] => INSTANT )
