The Anthropocene Reviewed Turtles All the Way Down The Fault in Our Stars Looking for Alaska Paper Towns An Abundance of Katherines
John Green’s nonfiction debut is a masterful and deeply moving collection of personal essays about falling in love with the world. “The perfect book for right now.” Aza is living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts. Told with shattering, unflinching clarity, this is a brilliant exploration of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship. “The greatest romance story of this decade.” Hazel and Augustus meet at support group for teens with cancer. Last words and first loves at boarding school. John Green’s award-winning, genre-defining debut. Winner of the Edgar Award. Margo summons Q for an ingenious night of revenge. When the new day breaks, Margo has disappeared. But there are clues—and they’re for Q. An ingeniously layered comic novel about love, friendship, mathematical theorems, and the Archduke Franz Ferdinand.
