  1. I am not surprised that Fault in Our Stars is getting accolades! What a banner week for John Green. Don't you wonder if authors know when they've written a book that will do better than the other ones they've written?

    And Insurgent doing well isn't a surprise either, students are really enjoying it.


I look forward to your comments and interactions! Join in the conversation.
