**Now a major motion picture**
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 mother forces him to become friends with a girl who has cancer. This brings about the destruction of Greg's entire life.

    👍Worth reading

    This isn't the book for those that enjoy romance. This book is about filmmaking, and weird friendships and growing up. The latter isn't obvious, it's weaved into the story, it's shadowed by a teenagers perspective.

    I'm really enjoying this. I'm hoping this gets more interesting.

    For me personally, things are in no way more meaningful because I got to know Rachel before she died. If anything, things are less meaningful. All right

    “I was pleasantly surprised when the first day of senior year did not make me want to freak out and hide in my own locker pretending to be dead.”
