Me and Earl and the Dying girl…IS A MOVIE!?

So last night I went and saw Pitch Perfect 2, which was really good might I just add, and while I was watching the previews a little preview came up that I HAD to share!

Watch trailer here 

At first I was really confused as to what this movie was, but as I started watching the trailer I really wanted to watch it, but then at the end when they reveled the title I REALLY wanted to watch it because it’s another book to movie adaptation! (I love my book to movie adaptations). I have not actually read this book, nor did I know what it was about until seeing the trailer, but now I really want to read the book! (and of course see the movie when it comes out on June 12th, 2015!

Goodreads Summary:

Greg 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.


Though it reminds me somewhat of TFIOS, I still want to read it because it does have some quirks that I think will set it apart.
