Our customer reviews

A modest, witty and truthful novel. This is a book that represents an adolescents experience in high school like no other. Contemporary novels have a tendency to be unrealistic and predictable. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, I'm glad to say, was not apart of the majority. Even though its intention wasn't to make the reader have a sudden revelation on life and death, it does teach you to make most of the time that you have. One of the supporting characters, Earl, also teaches the reader that you can't just look out for everyone else all the time, before you can help others, you must help yourself.
