And the winner of the best young adult fiction of 2012:
The sheer volume of votes this novel got ahead of the others says a lot. 28.5 THOUSAND more than the 2nd place nominee.
turns out that this book can be observed in two ways: Either as a piece
of phenomenal written fiction with existentialist revolutions, or as a
strong teen's novel.
Here's the reason I love John Green, these are
the only novels I have come across that modern teens of today, written
by a modern writer of today, can read and not be forced to believe in an
unhealthy outlook on centering your life around your lover. John
Green maintains the importance of family, shows the strength of love
(even as teenagers), let's his characters make incorrect assumptions,
and allows an intellectual teen to relate to someone. Finally, in my
Teens all over the world have been given heroines and
heroes, as of late, that are strong, fast, and independent, but this is
the first book I've read in YA that gives them a mentally strong
character to cheer for.
I might gush over this book, simply because
this book is worth gushing over. As a mother myself, this is the type of
literature I'd want my children to read.
When it comes to The Fault in Our Stars?
Shut Up and Read It.
