There’s certainly no fault in John Green’s stars. If you haven’t heard of him yet, John Green is an Indiana resident, Young Adult author, and is one half of the Vlogbrothers, one of the most popular online video projects in the world. His #1 New York Times bestseller that Time Magazine called “damn near genius,” The Fault in Our Stars is being adapted into a movie to be released June 2014 starring Divergent‘s Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort.
Recently, it was announced that Green’s novel Paper Towns will be adapted into a movie with not only the same producers and screenwriters as The Fault in Our Stars, but also one of the stars. And even more exciting for fans:
I'm also REALLY excited that I'll be an executive producer on the Paper Towns movie. Now, if you don't like something, you can blame me.

Paper Towns features Quentin, with his neighbor Margo, who discover a man who committed suicide. When Margo vanishes, he begins getting clues from her and has to follow them.
Green’s books are funny, moving, and somewhat impossible to put down. You can find Paper Towns, The Fault in Our Stars, Looking for Alaska,and the rest of Green’s novels in IUCAT.
