The Friday 56|#5 Me and Earl and The Dying Girl.


BookMe and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews.

SynopsisGreg Gaines is the last master of high school espionage, able to disappear at will into any social environment. He has only one friend, Earl, and together they spend their time making movies, their own incomprehensible versions of Coppola and Herzog cult classics.

Until Greg’s mother forces him to rekindle his childhood friendship with Rachel.

Rachel has been diagnosed with leukemia—-cue extreme adolescent awkwardness—-but a parental mandate has been issued and must be obeyed. When Rachel stops treatment, Greg and Earl decide the thing to do is to make a film for her, which turns into the Worst Film Ever Made and becomes a turning point in each of their lives.

And all at once Greg must abandon invisibility and stand in the spotlight.

The Rules:

  1. Grab a book, any book.
  2. Turn to page 56 or 56% in you E-Reader. (If you have to improvise, that’s okay.)
  3. Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
  4. Post it.
  5. Add your URL post below in the Linky. (Add the post URL, not your blog URL.)


The 56

Well, this was true. Rachel and I had a few classes together, including calculus, where we
sat right next to each other, and yeah, I made no effort to talk to her during any of that
time. But I mean, that’s just what I did in school. I didn’t make an effort to talk to anyone. No
friends, no enemies. That was the whole point.
