Up until senior year, Greg has maintained total social invisibility. He only has one friend, Earl, and together they spend their time—when not playing video games and avoiding Earl’s terrifying brothers—making movies, their own versions of Coppola and Herzog cult classics. Greg would be the first one to tell you his movies are f*@$ing terrible, but he and Earl don’t make them for other people—until Rachel.

Rachel has leukemia, and Greg’s mom gets the genius idea that Greg should befriend her. Against his better judgment and despite his extreme awkwardness, he does. When Rachel decides to stop treatment, Greg and Earl must abandon invisibility and make a stand. It’s a hilarious, outrageous, and truthful look at death and high school by a prodigiously talented debut author.

This audiobook is read by the stars of the movie adaptation, Thomas Mann and RJ Cyler, as well as Keith Szarabajka, Hillary Huber, Kirby Heyborne, Abigail Revasch, and Adenrele Ojo.

Quotes & Awards

  • “One need only look at the chapter titles (“Let’s Just Get This Embarrassing Chapter out of the Way”) to know that this is one funny book.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Though this novel begs inevitable thematic comparisons to John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, it stands on its own in inventiveness, humor, and heart.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Narrator Thomas Mann is flawless as insecure high school senior Greg Gaines…First-person narration allows Mann to channel the paradox that is Greg. We hear his muttered responses to girls while at the same time being privy to his humorously insightful self-examination. R. J. Cyler portrays Earl, whose street-talking honesty is in sharp contrast to Greg’s reticence. As the two friends make their movies, listeners are treated to scenes—complete with narrator, setting, and script notes. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”


  • “The story employs a number narrative devices, including screenplay-style passages, bulleted lists, movie reviews, and fake newspaper headlines, which are expertly handled by a chorus of voice actors (Keith Szarabajka, Hillary Huber, Kirby Heyborne, Abigail Revasch, and Adenrele Ojo). The use of multiple voices textures the story and increases the entertainment value of the entire audiobook.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • “In his debut novel, Andrews tackles some heavy subjects with irreverence and insouciance…[Greg] brings self-deprecation to new heights…both funny and tragic, mixing crude humor and painful self-awareness.”
