Challenging Reads Book Club: ‘Me Earl and the Dying Girl’ by Jesse Andrews

Tuesday, March 19, 2024
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

It is the story of Greg Gaines, the terminally awkward groundhog-looking kid who just wants to survive high school without anyone really paying attention to him; his only friend and coworker Earl Jackson, who is the creative genius that he makes deeply terrible movies with; and Rachel, a girl with cancer that Greg’s mom is forcing him to hang out with.

In starred reviews, Booklist called it “one funny book” and “moving,” and Kirkus Reviews said it “stands on its own in inventiveness, humor, and heart.” It also won the 2013 Cybils Award for Young-Adult Fiction, among other recognitions.
