August Waters put a cigarette to his lips and smiled, and the girl next to me cooed in delight, her hands flying to her mouth.
“Yes! Yes, he’s so perfect,” the girl behind me giggled to her friend.
“You are beautiful,” Gus tells a blushing Hazel. “I enjoy looking at beautiful people, and I decided a while ago not to deny myself the simpler pleasures of existence.”
At first I thought The Godfather had been re-released in theaters. I knew I dropped my 15 year old daughter and her two friends off three hours earlier so they could see the film adaptation of John Green's The Fault in Our Stars, but how else could I interpret this text?
"New favorite movie, indescribable."

We talked to New York Times best-selling author John Green about his BlogHer Book Club selection, The Fault in Our Stars. Here's what he had to say about the strength of community, signing 150,000 copies of his new book and how becoming a father changed him.
In January of 2007 someone pointed me to a YouTube channel that a young adult author and his brother were using as their main mode of communication for the whole year. That author was John Green, and I quickly became a fan of both him and his brother Hank. I hadn't read any of John Green's books before I started watching the videos, but once I started, I became hooked and began thrusting them into the hands of every reader I knew. To say that I was really happy to be reading The Fault in Our Stars for BlogHer Book Club is an understatement. My reaction was closer to an ode to Kermit the Frog, complete with a big "Yay!" and flailing Muppet arms.
John Green is an award-winning, New York Times-bestselling author whose many accolades include the Printz Medal, a Printz Honor, and the Edgar Award. He has twice been a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize. With his brother, Hank, John is one half of the Vlogbrothers, one of the most popular online video projects in the world. His latest book, The Fault in Our Stars is a BlogHer Book Club pick.
