Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
Greg has figured out how to navigate the high school social scene. Be friendly enough with every social circle and you'll get by. He has his friend Earl and they make movies after school, but then show them to no one. When Greg's mom suggests he befriend Rachel, a girl he knew in Hebrew school, because she has cancer, Greg is not pleased. Now he hidden social status is blown. And it gets worse when Greg and Earl decide to make a video about Rachel-and the whole school has to watch it.
