John Green

One of our favorite authors in the teen department is John Green.  His books for young adults are full of brilliant wit and gripping emotional honesty.  His first novel, Looking for Alaska, won the Michael L. Printz Award for excellence in Young Adult literature in 2006.  An Abundance of Katherinesalso a Printz Award Honor Book, is a fun book about a boy who only dates girls named Katherine, and ends up getting dumped each time.  Will Grayson, Will Grayson is a realistic story of two boys, both named Will Grayson, meeting by chance on a street in Chicago.  Green explores the larger issues of life and death with amazing sensitivity and honesty in The Fault in our Stars Paper Towns is a fascinating look at the power of imagination and perception when a boy is taken on a wild overnight adventure with Margo, his best friend (and long-time secret crush), who then disappears.  Come discover these John Green gems or find other great reads today!
