Book-to-Movie News: “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl”

Another highly anticipated YA book-to-movie adaptation is headed to a theater near you…. Jesse Andrews’ 2012 YA novel took an irreverent look at cancer and friendship in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. As Kirkus Reviews commented upon its release, “Though this novel begs inevitable thematic comparisons to John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars (2011), it stands on its own in inventiveness, humor and heart.” Now the movie adaptation is garnering equally affectionate praise. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, endearing itself to audiences and critics while winning the “Grand Jury Prize” and the “Audience Award” for a U.S. drama. It opens in theaters June 12th, but check out the newly released trailer in the meantime.
