A brilliant, ceaselessly hilarious book that perfectly captures what it's like to deal with capital S Serious issues (in this case, a friend with cancer) as a teenager. There's no syrupy sentimentality or big sweeping life lessons to be found here, but protagonist Greg Gaines is so well drawn and voiced that by the end of it all he has burrowed so deeply inside you that his messy feelings are your messy feelings and those messy feelings feel like an accurate representation of the human experience.
