When Rachel finds out she has leukemia, Greg’s mother forces him to befriend her, even though Greg barely knows Rachel. He would much rather spend his time with his best friend, Earl, doing what they do best: making terrible films based on their favorite movies.

But the three of them do eventually become friends, and Greg and Earl come up with a brilliant plan: create a film for Rachel to make her feel better and take her mind off her cancer.

Parents should be aware that this is a young adult book and contains:

• Profanity (many uses of the F-word and sh*t, as well as crude sexual talk like boobs, boner, butt hole, and p*ssy)
• Some jibes against Christianity
• Greg and Earl talk and think about sex a lot
• Looking at a picture of breasts online
• Reference to getting an erection
• Violence (angry outbursts, broken arm, punching)
• A family does drugs
• Drinking mojitos
• Two teen boys accidentally ingest marijuana

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is a hilarious and melancholy book about friendship, the life of teenagers, and cancer.
