The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in Our Stars - John Green I read this because my high school students this summer couldn't stop talking about how good it was. And it was pretty great. They're almost always right! (Exceptions: Twilight, 50 Shades). I especially enjoyed the commentary on fandom, the ways in which the main characters worked as two different sorts of fans (of a fictional fiction writer, but still). Fun, if one can describe a book about teenagers with cancer as fun.
