I’ve been told the book is better (which is almost always the case, no?) but having not read it, I can’t personally say. Greg is the protagonist in this story. He likes to think that he coasts along on his own path and avoids getting involved in dramas by staying on the periphery of every group in his high school. He won’t even admit his friendship with Earl, who he refers to as his “co-worker”. Together Greg and Earl have created dozens of silly movie parodies and have eaten lunch together for years. Who is the dying girl? She has cancer and Greg’s mom makes him hang with her. The treatment of her disease is respectful and rings true to life. It is not super-sweet nor over-the-top bravado. Nick Offerman play’s Greg’s dad in a wonderfully different role for this fine actor. I also really enjoyed Molly Shannon as the sick girl’s mom. Check Our Catalog
