This was my end of summer book to read. It didn’t take long at all to get through. You would find it in the YA section of the library but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t seek it out as an adult reader. It deals with a serious subject matter with great humor. I felt that the three main characters — Greg, Earl, and Rachel — were appropriately portrayed as teenaged. They were not as unrealistic as the characters in The Fault In Our Stars. I also felt that the author dealt with the relationship the kids had with their parents in a very mature and realistic manner. I also appreciated that the demise of Rachel was not a long, drawn out affair. For anyone who might not want to read the book, there is a movie that was made.
