Dear Mr. Green
I have only read two of your books and I am drawn to you and your book already. I have a few queries about paper towns. These questions would be similar to hazel grace lancasters questions on an imperial affliction. However im hoping a good man like you won’t exactly answer my questions like Peter van houten answered hazel grace lancasters
1. Would there be a book reuniting Margo and Quentin?
2. Does radar, Ben and Lacey leave without Quentin?
3. Did Quentin and Margo stay in touch?
4. Do they have a future together?
I would prefer an email back however, you’re probably a busy man
Yours sincerely kelle cowell

John Green doesn’t write sequels.


Megan Lowry March 29, 2015 at 8:18 pm

Dear John Green,
You are brilliant. I spend a great deal of time reading your books. I love them. You are my favorite author. I am only 13 and I can assure you I understand you better than most people older than me. I love to read. Your books are my favorite, and as a 13 year old, I have read quite a few books. I read them over and over again. After all, the greatest books are the books you wouldn’t mind reading over and over again. You create stories people have the desire to read. When I get older I would like to become an author, and let me tell you, you are such an inspiration. I admire you so greatly and all I would like to say is, you are the best. Keep writing, I promise I’ll keep reading. Your books do mean something to people, thank you for all the pleasure you have brung to my life.

You’re great! The Fault in Our Stars is one of the greates thing ever!


Keirsten March 30, 2015 at 3:30 pm

Dear Mr.Green,
I am writing to you to ask a few questions about your book, Paper Towns. Yes, I know, The Fault in Our Stars is usually the main source of all your fan-mail, questions, etc. But I am actually more intrigued by Paper Towns than your more well known novel(s).

I actually have a few post-ending questions. Some may be “Did Quentin ever keep his promise to Margo? Or did they make each other false promises in which they knew the contact between them would differ the answers?” But, my most important question is, “Will there ever be a sequel to the book?” I certainly enjoyed the original novel, obviously, but the fact that some people like me are questioning whether there should be a second installment just makes the idea sound even better. Well, I know there are many fan-fictions out there somewhere, but the simple idea of there actually being a second book to that specific first one, by the same author, just makes me even more pumped about the idea of a sequel.

I know, you have lots of questions like these, but if you could please take the time to answer questions like mine, I would obviously be happy. The only reason I ask is because I am currently depressed, and your books make me feel better. I know, it seems like a plea for attention, but it isn’t.

And considering the age I am, which is twelve, you wouldn’t think a kid like me would take the time to remove their nose from their phones, and actually spend the time to try and make their illogical dreams happen. I always hear that the odds are against you, but I would like to think that if you try hard enough, those odds could be with you. And I definitely know that if you try hard enough, your illogical dreams could become logical. And I would like to make a mark on the world before oblivion swallows all our attempts to be the number one people we can be.

So, to summarize this, I would like to think that you could answer my questions.

Keirsten Woodburn.

But what is even better iss tailoring your emails to reflect the staage at which your
relationship is wiith them. Even the phenomenon of the
ovum as a neutral still microcosmic photograph
of the woman’s state of mind is the receiver off one singular sperm from thee many that are ejaculated.
A female orgasm also codes the egg in a manner that thee
DNA is ‘sealed with the climax’ with whatever mind the woman held at the time in a finality of
energy coursing through her body.


Etty ausch March 30, 2015 at 4:27 pm

Hey John, I never write to authors. But this is an exception. I am not your typical reader,but like many readers I have had some tough rough patches in my life. Reading tfios has changed my life. I cried, and reread that book until I practically know it by heart. I underlined all your awesome extraordinary lines that changed my outlook in so many areas in life. “Life is not a wish granting factory” is now the line I live by. I have pain and oh so many wishes but with that line (and so many others), I can accept what I’ve got. Just wanted to thank you and keep on writing, I love all your books! You’re awesome! Etty


Hazel Anderson-Larson March 30, 2015 at 7:38 pm

Dear John,
Last summer I read the Fault in Our Stars twice. When school started I found myself picking up Paper Towns every second I could. When I finished that I read the Fault in Our Stars again. Over winter break I read an Abundance of Kathrines. I’ve noticed that all of these books are about people traveling. Why? I love to travel. my family takes road trips all of the time. I have (currently) been to 26 states. Next year I will be starting high school. My goal is to have been to all 50 by the time I enter college.
The names you use in your writing are unique. Other than people that tell me their grandma’s name is Hazel, I have only met two other Hazels. So that leaves me wondering why you chose Hazel in the first place. About a year ago people started calling me Hazel Grace (thanks John) and they would ask if I had read the book. Prior to this I have recommended your books to everyone.
You have also practically been my history teacher for the last two years. our social studies teacher makes us watch a video every single day… Thanks for those crash courses.

Alexis Pearce March 31, 2015 at 12:14 pm

Dear John Green,
My name is Alexis and Im in love with your book The Fault in our stars.
It’s amazing!! I just have a few questions about it.
Like does Hazel end up dying or lives and gets married and has kids?
What happens to Isaac does he eventually get those robot eyes?
My cousin was wondering if you were going or are writing a sequel.
Like about Hazels life without Augustus. I hope you could answer my questions. Thank you John Green for making an amazing book.
Sincerely, Alexis Pearce


Ava Shipley March 31, 2015 at 2:28 pm

John Green the reason I am writing to you today is beacuse I want answers. It almost seems like you stopped mud-sentence like Van Houten did in “An Imperial Affliction” I can’t possibly live without answers to this book Dear John Green! I have done reasearch on where you live and there is nothing. NOTHING AT ALL. This makes me want to scream. I want to send you letters and I want you to respond. I want that more than anything I have ever wanted before. Hazel was the most amazing person I have ever met. I say I’ve net her Beacuse the way you told me about her and the way you described her it’s almost as if I’ve known her for her whole life. My Mother had breast cancer and I thought that I would never read a story about cancers in my entire life. But before my Mother got diagnosed she took me to the bookstore and after more than what seemed like 5,678 hours, she finally let me get the book. I read the first sentence that almost made me want to cry, ” Late in the winter of my seventeenth year, my mother decided I was depressed, presumably because I rarely left the house, spent quite a lot of time in bed, read the same book over and over, ate infrequently, and devoted quite a bit of my abundant free time to thinking about death.” And that Dear John Green is what made me finish ” The Fault in our Stars” in one day. I need answers John Green. And please tell me your email address not because I am some psyco person trying to kill you. My wonderfully thought out questions are: (not thought out at all though…) 1. Does Hazel ever live throughout her cancer life. And does she ever ever ever get cured? 2. How does she live knowing that her one and only true live has died? 3. What ends up happening to Isaac? 4. Does Hazels mother ever become a counselor type person like she wanted to be? 5. Are these really dumb questions? And last of all Dear John Green, 6. And do you even care enough to answer my questions of an 11 year old names Ava Shipley? And if you do Dear John Green, just know that I will alwayd respond back to you. And for the record, The Fault in our Stars was the most wonderful book that ( Me a book LOVER) one 11 year old girl in the broken-down planet had ever read. (P.S. I like your book.) – Ava Shipley


Kaylea Jackson March 31, 2015 at 9:20 pm

Dear John Green,

I’m hoping that you will read this, as it is very important that you do.

I’m was originally going to start out with, “I love your work, haven’t gotten the chance to read all Will Grayson Will Grayson yet but I promise I will,”

But, I’m actually going to tell you this: I’m going to go to a place called “The Warm Place” tomorrow because I lost my mother back in November. We are finally able to do intake after four and a half months of waiting because of the booked schedule for that amount of time. (Yes, every available day in those four and a half months were completely booked.) Needless to say, I’m not really sure about getting together with a bunch of sad people and sharing feelings and stuff because believe me, I’ve had my fair share of groups in treatment centers. It’s not as great as you’d anticipate.

I honestly feel like Hazel did when she was going to the Heart of Jesus, and I haven’t even gone yet. I feel like it’s going to be like Patrick yapping about how he lost his balls. Except it’ll be sad. At least Patrick survived. Their story will be like Issac losing his sight. And honestly, I believe my mom’s tragedy is a lot like Augustus Waters’s. (By the way, she went and saw the movie with me, and even though she hates reading books AFTER she already saw the movie she did it anyway<3) My mom's lower left leg was amputated in September 2013 because of an infection that was caused by diabetes. She got even more sick over the course of the next year, more infections in her body. She had a lot of health problems. She was beautiful and loved to make artsy things and made me smile when I was down. She painted me a sort of abstract painting that looked like a cloud but she said, "That is your guardian angel. She lives in the sky and will always be there for you." She was still there for me the night she died in her sleep, November 12. She was in the room with me because I was feeling suicidal. My mom held me tightly that night and didn't want to let go. I didn't either. Her last words were at 1:30 am and they were, "Go back to bed, Kaylea." She had problems with her lungs filling up with fluids in the past. The next morning I waved goodbye to her but little did I know I was waving goodbye to a corpse, not a person. She passed in her sleep in the dark hours. My dad picked me up in what was supposed to be 5th period and said, "Having a bad day?" and I nodded because I was; I was having anxiety. He said, "Well it's about to get worse." I followed him to the truck and didn't say a word. I kind of knew it was coming. I just didn't want it to be real. As soon as he said, "Mom passed away in her sleep," I had a breakdown.

Back onto the whole thing with The Warm Place. Sorry, I was in my little world just a moment ago.

But I'm not going to /not/ go because I want to be with my dad. Mind you, he has lost his wife of what would've been 30 years in December. So I'm going, to check it out and see if it will help. I just wish that I could meet someone that would think I'm worth while. That's why I try to go places. To make friends. I don't have many that actually give me the time of day. Or night.

But honestly, because of your books, I have become someone worth while to me. Your books gave me a glimpse of life. I want to go places and feel great and chase after dreams and be have fun instead of stay home and watch Netflix to distract myself from everything. I want to keep writing and keep playing music and graduate from high school (I'm a sophmore, 15 and almost 16 in May) and feel happy and tilt my head back to see the sky, or really the clouds to say: "Hi, Mom."


Kaylin Stewart April 1, 2015 at 12:50 am

Dear John Green,

Hi, my name Kaylin and although I am a fan of your writings, I am not about to shall I say “fangirl” in this letter. Recently I was given an assignment that requires me to interview people about what they believe the “American Dream” means. And although I would have ended being the average student who goes and interviews my dear parents perhaps even my dog, I wanted to see if by any chance I could get someone completely different.

To get straight to the point, I was wondering- no begging- if there was a possibility if I could interview you on your opinion of the “American Dream” and what it means to you. I truly hope you read this because it would mean so much to me (and my teacher) if you were one of three interviewees.

Thank you for your time,
Kaylin Stewart


Nida April 1, 2015 at 12:57 pm

Dear Mr. Green,
Everybody in my school loves your books and I was wondering whether you do school visits? (I asked you on Tumblr too @Daughter-ofposidon)


reva fetty April 1, 2015 at 2:29 pm

Dear, Mr. Green
hi, my name is reva fetty. I want to tell you that I enjoy your book fault in our stars. I know people that loves your book and movie. you did a wonderful job making the book I wish you could write what happens to Hazel and everybody else in the book after Hazel read the sequel of her book. if I had the chance to meet the characters in your book instead of the movie characters I would love that because I could relate to her problems. I have heart problem even though Its not cancer. I have seen a lot of people wrote to you and they asked if you could write back. I would love if you write back this comment because I would love if you could answer every ones question about Hazel and Isaac and every body in the book. if you don’t comment to this maybe you are busy but if you take the time to read this then you doing every body a favor for doing so. well, I better stop writing because it will be really long to you. I hope you answer my comment.

Samantha Cuerden April 1, 2015 at 2:43 pm

Dear John.
I hope this actually gets to you and you read it yourself instead of some assistant. I can honestly say i’ve read all your books and I thank you for making those books and bringing those characters to life with just words. With each book I read I felt like I was that character, for instance im reading Will Grayson, Will Grayson.. I feel like I am a depressed gay guy or with another book I felt like im dying of cancer.. your writing really makes a person feel like that character which is pretty magical if you think about it. Its not only that but the things you write in these books in my opinion are like life changing philosophical quotes that people should carry around with them. im not one those girls who are going to say that I Love you because of the movie fault in our stars, no’, I couldn’t give less of a shit about the movie. I’m hoping to contact you to thank you for being you and for you writing these stories that have so much to say. You are the sorta person id want to have tea with and just listen to what you have to say.


Matt April 1, 2015 at 2:48 pm

I think you should start using the word “unsick” in your stories because I belive that it is a good word to use when you become healthy of sickness
