'Me, Earl and the Dying Girl was beautifully written. It was hilariously belly-aching at some parts and tearfully touching in others. I loved it. The story was written realistically; it did not add fancy flairs or provide a happy, unrealistic ending and the characters were so lovably different and awkward. This is the most awesomely peculiar book I have read all month.' Isabelle, 15
'This delightfully weird book was a true pleasure to read, funny and sincere. Like the main character said from the onset: This is not a book about romantic love or big life changing moments. It's a funny (and some times disgusting!) account of life how it is – inexplicable, complex and not a fairy tale.' Emily, 25
'I cannot begin to describe how hilariously funny this book was - it had me unable to read because I was laughing so much.' Christine, 17
'Me and Earl and the Dying Girl was amusing and highly entertaining. It took me three days to read, I just couldn't seem to put it down. I enjoyed the different ways that the author wrote conversations throughout and the additional chapters that explain Greg's life.' Elouise, 17
'I really enjoyed it. The narrator was funny and I liked the characters. It had a different feel to other books I’ve read recently, but I liked it! I thought the subject of leukaemia was handled delicately but also not tip toed around. I liked that.' Allison
