Trailer for "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl"

So this is another Sundance movie that apparently got positive notices and was picked up for a summer release, but is it me or does this look exactly like The Fault in Our Stars 2.0? Is this a new fad, the weepy teen melodrama involving terminal illness (and voiceover narration acknowledging movie cliches)? I tend to give Sundance movies the benefit of the doubt on principle, but this just looks way too cheesy.
