John Green's new book, The Fault in Our Stars, has just arrived. In case you've forgotten, John Green's the author of Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns, and Will Grayson, Will Grayson. (FYI, Will Grayson, Will Grayson is missing so if you know who has it, tell that person to cough it up.) There's been a lot of talk about this book from Time Magazine, the New York Times Book Review, USA Today as well as in the school library world. It promises to be a great read; come and get it!
