unabridged, 5 CDs, 6 hrs., $35 ISBN 978-0-14-752083-8
Senior Greg Gaines has drifted through high school trying to be friendly with everyone but is friends with no one, moving between cliques without committing. His only hobby is making awful movies with Earl, his foul-mouthed pal. Greg’s carefully maintained routine is upset when his mother encourages him to spend time with Rachel, a classmate suffering from leukemia. Greg begrudgingly befriends Rachel, before being conned by another classmate into making a movie about her. 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. Ages 14–up. An Abrams/Amulet paperback. (June)
