Me and Earl and the Dying Girl Summary
These notes were contributed by members of the GradeSaver community. Whatever the opposite of a social butterfly is, Greg Gaines is that; a senior at Benson High School, he survives by becoming acquaintances with everybody, and friends with nobody. He avoids becoming a member of a social clique yet remains on friendly terms with all of them. He has an actual real friend, called Earl , but he doesn't really publicly claim the friendship. He tentatively terms them "co-workers". The real story is that they have been friends since they were very young children; Earl is from a poor area, and he comes from a broken home. Greg and Earl spend most of their time together, making short films, but they never tell anyone; high school is a cruel and difficult place sometimes, and they are sure that if they share their films with their peers they will be ridiculed.
I think it really got to me when Greg described the school principal "an African American dyjng, big and scary and with the same "pissed" look that Earl has. Really, are books about teens with cancer the new black! The book has a 3! Greg is a senior at high school; an introvert at heart with an extrovert attitude!
