    Peter Turchi: IMG Writing as Puzzle



    I loved books, loved stories, loved being read to at an early age and then reading for myself — that's true for most writers. But looking... Continue »

Staff Pick

John Green has so cleanly sidestepped anything precious, sentimental, and heart-warming in The Fault in Our Stars, it's a wonder he was even able to write about two teenagers diagnosed with cancer. These are some fertile fields for tweeness, indeed. Oh, but he can write — and wonderfully! His characters are so true to life, I can hardly think of them as characters. Hazel is terminal and Gus is in recovery when they meet at a cancer-survivors support group. They have much to say about death, illness, grief, survival, love, and time: "What a slut time is. She screws everybody." This is a smart, funny, extraordinary book, one that is monumentally profound. You will silently thank John Green over and over for sharing this amazing story.

Did you really think YA was all vamps and other fantastical, supernatural... stuff? Well, you'd be wrong. Very wrong. 'Cause John Green exists. And his book The Fault in Our Stars tackles the subject of teens and cancer. But it's not a "cancer story" in the sappy, Lifetime-movie sense. Sure, you'll cry, but you'll also laugh out loud, and it's all done with grace (Hazel Grace, that is). Not to mention, it's insanely quotable, so have a highlighter handy.

Katherine Stevens, April 27, 2013 (view all comments by Katherine Stevens)
Unapologetic tearjerker. Inventive, atypical story of two cancer-riddled teenagers who travel to Amsterdam in search of closure from a sad drunk novelist who left his one book incomplete. Even though the ending is no surprise, it is equal parts clever and crushing. Cried so hard I thought I was going to throw up.
