**Soon to be 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This was probably the funniest book I've ever read... Everyone should read this book. * Guardian *
Funny, warm, enjoyably scatterbrained... An honest depiction of society's reaction to illness and death. * The Observer *
This surprising gem is at once moving and hilarious... Greg and his misadventures will have you laughing out loud. * Book Trust *
Dead funny... Shows just how much fun reading and writing can be. * The Australian *
Hilarious, irreverent, sometimes rude and ultimately very touching. It's a great read and is highly recommended. * Canberra Times *

“A Grim Look At Death”

God this was sad.
So sad.
The truth of death = we all lead boring lives. We all die.
Greg is the narrator and to be honest, he’s not that nice. He’s extremely honest, though. He doesn’t want to hang out with Rachel,... More
