I just finished reading Me and Earl and the Dying Girl yesterday. I had picked it up immediately following the Harry Potter series, but put it right back down because I wasn’t at all ready for something so different when my heart pieces were still all over the floor. But I picked it up again a few days ago and devoured it… I really loved it. Not in an emotional, Eleanor and Park way, but in an entertaining, laugh out loud, surprising bits of heart way.

Anyway, so Greg (the main character), is “writing” this book and he uses headlines in a part of it to talk about what’s going on.

I thought I’d share some of my recent headlines.
