Mini Reviews

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl
Me and Earl and the Dying GirlAuthor: Jesse Andrews
Publisher:  Harry N. Adams
Publication Date:  March 1st 2012
Pages: 295
Rating: 3 out of 5 Stars

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is basically an acid trip in book form.  Told in first person, we go inside the crazy mind of Greg, and seriously Greg needs happy pills.  He's quite a character...weird, brutally honest, insecure and a pervert.  Author Jesse Andrews writes the way your head process thoughts.  You know like when your driving the same route you go everyday and your mind wanders to the most random thoughts.  Anyway, it's a entertaining read, but if you're expecting a insightful read about death, and cancer look elsewhere. 

Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac

Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Publication Date:  August 21st 2007
Pages: 288, Hardcover
Rating: 2.5 out of 5 Stars

Honestly I can't remember that much about Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac, it just isn't a memorable book.  Naomi takes a fall and loses the last 4 years of her memory. In the last 4 years some major changes have occurred in her family and teenage life. None of the characters really stood out for me, and the plot was just okay.  Keep in mind that I am not a young adult so that may have something to do with my dislike of it.
