After "The Fault of Our Stars"...Now what?


So you read and loved John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars and you saw the movie.  Now what?  

Here are some great books to read.

Anything by author John Green is a great choice. Here are two suggestions.

Looking for Alaska
      Miles heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School. Down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. Like every other boy there, Miles falls madly in love with her. Then. . . . After.  Nothing is ever the same.





An Abundance of Katherines
     Having been recently dumped for the nineteenth time by a girl named Katherine, recent high school graduate Colin sets off on a road trip to try to find some new direction in life and create a mathematical formula to explain his relationships. 






Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
       One of my favorite recent books.
       Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.





Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by  Jesse Andrews
       Seventeen-year-old Greg has managed to become part of every social group at his Pittsburgh high school without having any friends, but his life changes when his mother forces him to befriend Rachel, a girl he once knew in Hebrew school who has leukemia.





Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
       When high school student Clay Jenkins receives a box in the mail containing thirteen cassette tapes recorded by his class mate Hannah, who committed suicide, he spends a bewildering and heartbreaking night crisscrossing their town, listening to Hannah’s voice recounting the events leading up to her death.


 



The Beginning of Everything by Robyn  Schneider
       Star athlete and prom king Ezra Faulkner's life is irreparably transformed by a tragic accident and the arrival of eccentric new girl Cassidy Thorpe.





Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
       After she dies in a car crash, teenage Samantha relives the day of her death over and over again until, on the seventh day, she finally discovers a way to save herself.





Happy Reading!
