"…I admire [THE FAULT IN OUR STARS] enormously, more so than most of the adult-targeted novels I’ve read of late. And I found myself eager to share it. I bought a copy for a dear friend’s 12-year-old daughter. Then I sent a copy each to my two brothers, for them to pass on to any of their seven children who might be interested. I sent another copy to my sister, for her four kids.

Several days after the copies were delivered, my niece Leslie, 15, sent me a Facebook message that was its own powerful affirmation of reading’s blessedly stubborn allure.

“John Green is one of my favorite writers,” she said. “His book ‘Looking for Alaska’ is arguably my favorite book. It changed my outlook on life considerably. When I saw ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ on the counter, I almost passed out I was so happy. I would absolutely love to talk to you about the book once I finish.”

Few things would make me happier.”
