Dear Mr Green,
My name is Monique I’m a native of the USA was born in Cambridge, MA, but I live in Brazil and 12 years, put it away all this time I’m in love with American books, and their books in particular got to me is mainly the fault of stars, where it was inevitable not to be moved by the beautiful story, but for me it was lacking to know what happened to Hazel after she finished reading the letter of Augustus, would be grateful if you could pass me an email to tell me what was the end of Hazel Grace, await your response.

Hello there
I assume this hasn’t gone through to john green but a publisher who Is in touch with him, but I’ll write as if I am in contact with him and just hope somebody does read this and it gets passed on, it would mean a great deal.

Hi Mr. green

My name is Joseph (or Joe). I am a 14 year old boy, I live in Britain and have a passion for films and reading/writing books. I recently read and saw fault in our stars and I have to say I really enjoyed it. It was honest and truly a master piece that I really felt for. I am writing as my girlfriend is turning 14 this September, we will have been going out for 7 months by then, her name is Amy (or Charlotte, she prefers her middle name, Amy, to her birth name) she is the most amazing girlfriend a guy could ask for. She is honest, open, beautiful, funny, smart and quite shy. She is a huge fan of your work and loves Fault In our stars. She has given so much to me in the months we have been together, it may not seem a long time but I’ve know her for 4 years and I love her so much. She is way to good for me and she is so kind to me, and for her birthday I really want to give her something special, something she will remember. I don’t care what it takes but if you would send her an email for her birthday or send a signed book of fault in our stars to me to give her, I would be deeply in your dept. money is not an issue I am more than happy to pay. If you could even consider this I would be beyond happy, you have no idea. I would be on a Rollor coaster that only goes up my friend :)

Obviously I can’t give my email or her email on here but if you could contact me I would happily give it to you. I hope you consider this.

I thank you again


Jaqueline Cuevas July 29, 2014 at 6:22 pm

Dear John Green,
Yes it’s me again,sorry for bothering you but i never really got to tell you how much I enjoyed you’re book. After all, it was a heart warming book. I know 12 year olds dont get a say so about their opinions on almost anything, but this book has made me think alot about our place in this world. When hazel says (in the movie), “I believe everyone has a place in this world.” Does she mean it by dead or alive, sick or healthy, or just meaning everybody was put in their place for a reason? I know you probally get these questions alot & it must be really annoying and im sorry about that. You’re book has inspired me to do things in life. Like for a long time I’ve known i want to be some one in this world. And you probally have heard tht a million times but for me it’s true. I’ve done things that I would’nt dream of doing. And i would appreciate it if you would write back. Thank you for listening to my annoyance.
•You’res truly


Pietra Sablic (Yes, again, sorry about that) July 29, 2014 at 6:44 pm

Dear Mr. Green,
I need help. I have no idea what I should do. Your book (TFIOS) hassss made me think so so much over the last few days. I have been thinking and thinking and I’m going crazy, thinking of every single little thing that could’ve happened to Hazel Grace Lancaster. Is she dead or alive? Does she get married? To whom?
A sequel to this wonderful book would save my mind from going crazy. I need to know. I really do.
So, plz help me by just doing this one favor. You are the most amazing writer ever. I really want to meet you some day. You and your book have given me the thoughts about life that I never thought I would think of.
TFIOS is an awesome book. It has a love story that gives in to a life lesson. I will cherish this book for the rest of my life.
Please write more. Please, please. Please?
Thank you for your time (if you read this),
- Pietra Sablic (age 11)


Jess Telfer July 30, 2014 at 3:58 am

Hi Pietra,
I thought exactly the same thing! I’m ten so there’s only roughly a year between us! I’m going to write john a letter soon but I’m still drafting it! I just don’t know what to write to him. He is inspiring me to become an author myself. I just wanted to reply to you because our age is similar and there isn’t very many ten or eleven year olds on here.
From Jessica Telfer❤️❤️


Mckenze July 29, 2014 at 7:42 pm

Hello Mr.Green,
My name is Mckenze and I am from the United States. This is probably not directly to you but I just really wish you could email me and tell me what happens to Hazel. The book said she still had pain in her lungs like it was already getting full of water again. What happens to Peter Van Houten, did he continue to be an alcoholic or did he finally sober up and write a sequel? Please Mr.Green you are an amazing writer and I would really like to know. Please reply.


Ada Speegle July 29, 2014 at 7:51 pm

Dear Mr . Green,

I would first like to say that your work is outstanding, a little inappropriate sometimes, but still magnificent! I have just finishes reading Paper Towns and have a few questions.
1.) what does magro see behind Q when she tells him to shut the window?
2.) are these highways/directions/places all real?
3.) why weren’t Q’s parents more worried when he skipped graduation day?
4.) are you working on any other books currently?
I know this comment will probably get lost in the sea of comments but it would mean a lot if your responded. Thank your for providing these wonderful books for us to read! I hope you are writing new ones!

-Ada Speegle (age 14)
(P.S. i got a little excited when i found out part of my last name was in your book)


Jess July 30, 2014 at 4:08 am

I love paper towns it’s my fav book!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️


Eliyah Raine July 29, 2014 at 9:48 pm

Dear John Green,

My name is Eliyah Raine and I am 12 years old. I live in Alberta, Canada and a Native American. Where I come from if you become an actor, sports player, novelist etc, you would be considered a very fortunate person. I am a hockey player and I think that I could be one of those “fortunate person”. Lately I have been having these amazing movie or book ideas. I believe that I can make this idea a big thing. Like every human being needs help right? This is why I came to you. People these days think that I am to young to do this, writing and maybe even movie directing. Since you have written alot of books, and I dont really know anyone from around where I live who have published books and experienced that. I am not saying that we should gang up and rule the Earth, but to make this idea spectacular. Most of the people my age arent really thinking about making a book or a movie, but I am. What I am asking for is your tips and expertise.
If you are you arent available to make this a spectacular thing ,its okay. But if you are please count me in and I would appreciate it alot. Please take time to read this and replay back.Thank you for your time!

Eliyah Raine


Cameron July 30, 2014 at 12:58 am

Ha I’m 11 and working on books. I’ve also asked JG(can I call u that John? If not I’ll understand lol) but he hasn’t responded. I wasn’t expecting him to though. I have some advice: be creative. Do what you want an how you want it. Just don’t copy. And have unicorns in your writing. Always unicorns. I’m just kidding. You know, I live somewhat close to you. I live in Montana. Hope you become an awesome author or movie person thingie!!!!

Best wishes


Eliyah July 30, 2014 at 4:16 pm

Thank you Cameron for you’r advice. I bet if John Green was a rapper that would is stage name.
PS. I’ll make sure to add Unicorns
thanks again


Jaqueline Cuevas July 29, 2014 at 10:06 pm

Dear John Green,
I’m really sorry to bother you. And i know you might not directly get this but maybe an assisstant or one of you’re co-workers. And I also know you might not read this comment first or anything and that it’s impossible to read this email and respond to it quickly, it may take a couple of months to read and respond to my email (sorry but its 3 emails) and i do have questions. Yes I know you get these questions alot but it would’nt hurt to answer me or anybody else. If an assisstant or one of you’re co-workers get this please let John read it and i know alot of fans say this but I’m on my edge to finding the answers to my questions. Thanks for understanding.
•you’re desperate 12 year old trying to find answers,


Evelynn July 29, 2014 at 11:32 pm

Hello there! You can call me Evelynn. I’m 15 years old and from New Jersey. I guess this is kind of stupid. Yet another stupid kid trying to cling to a fictional character for dear life. And maybe I’m being as cliché as all the other comments on here of people desperately trying to copy Hazel Grace. I can’t imagine your annoyance with these kind of comments. I can feel the insincerity behind them all the way in my heart and I’d bet my life you can too. But any how… No, I’m not looking for your advise… or a way to pull more money out of you… or for fame… and by far my favorite *insert extreme over-use of sarcasm* (Apparently its the popular thing to do to copy something straight out of one of your books as if you wouldn’t even notice.) for the questions that keep me up at night about The Fault In Our Stars to be answered… I want none of these because unlike some of the unintelligible… money digging… leaches that found their way onto this page… I can appreciate the old saying “some things are better left unsaid”. To be quite honest with you, I’m not actually sure what I’m doing here at all. Maybe it’s because I may be the most lonely creature to walk the planet… Or maybe it’s because I find comfort in your writing. Truth is John, I haven’t talked to anyone in 3 months(other than my mother, of course). And if I’m being really honest, I only venture from my room to get food and shower. I don’t have any friends… I did but I pushed them all away. My life has been riddled with pain and unbelievable hurt. I remember the day it started… I saw a woman I was incredibly close with dead on the floor… Such a great thing for a 12 year old to see, huh? Then my uncle got cancer and went from a heavy set southern man to a bed ridden sad sight. Then not even a month later another one of my fathers brothers died in a car crash… Unfortunately, he was yet another close relative of mine. After he died I practically lost my mind. I started out normal, long… dark brown hair… Typical teenage girl. Then one day I bleached it with peroxide (I saw it in an Eminem music video once) and then cut it all off and cut up all my clothes. And for my friends who didn’t run at the disaster I had become, I pushed away with my mentally unstable behavior. And that my friend, is why I’m siting in bed with a stray cat suffering from dwarfism I saved years ago. That is why I’m alone. Oh what a sad sight I’ve become… Oh well… I don’t know what I’ve got to gain by typing this to you, but then again what have I got to lose?

Actually Sincerely This Time,


Larva July 30, 2014 at 12:51 am

Oh my gosh I am so sorry. I’m not going to say those stupid things like “I feel your pain” or “it’s ok it’ll get better” or ” don’t worry everything is ok.” Because the truth is: EVERYTHING IS NOT OK. It won’t get better unless you try to make it happen. And I DONT understand your pain because I haven’t experienced loosing someone. Only my cat Casey but that was when I was 7 years old. I live no where close to you but my grandparents live in NJ. I could be your friend you know. It would be difficult but I could. I’m sure we’d have lots in common.



Barbara July 30, 2014 at 12:13 am

Hey! I just finished reading paper towns and the fault the stars and they were so awesome! I just wanted to let you know that I am going to read every one of your books! ~Your amazing fan, Barbara


Cameron July 30, 2014 at 12:40 am

Hi John. Love, love TFIOS. Best book ever. Do you get these messages on this site? If you do, why don’t you respond? You could like shut the site down while u reply to every single message. That was a stupid thought. There r millions of messages! But if u did that I would quit bugging u with constant questions. Please just answer these ones on this message:

1) When does Hazel die?
2) Do Hazel and Isaac ever go out?
3) How long does Isaac live?
4) Does Monica die randomly? (Please say yes! I really hate her!!!)
5) What happens to Hazel’s and Augustus’s parents?
6) Did you help out in the TFIOS movie?
7) Would u ever consider writing an Augustus perspective on TFIOS?
8) How did you make Augustus so perfect? Are you gay or something? I’m just joking please don’t answer that!!! If u knew me you’d know ijoke around like that.
9) I’m an author myself. Kind of. I’m working on it. Do you have any advice for me? If you do please tell!!!
10) How often do u reply? Please reply soon. I only talk to my favoritist authors!!!! That’s u and Meg Cabot. Love your work!!’

Write on!!!

Best wishes,


Cameron July 30, 2014 at 12:43 am

One last question: are you a chobonist? A chobonist is a person who works for choboni. That’s an inside joke. Haha



Georgoa Cotterill July 30, 2014 at 3:00 pm

Ooooh tfios Augustus’ view that would be great I also think Green writing An Imperial Affliction would be amazing!!


Cameron July 31, 2014 at 12:41 am

I believe John said that he wasn’t going to write AIA.. Sorry. But if he isn’t, I would still LOVE that!


Eve Schortgen July 30, 2014 at 12:45 am

John Green:

Hi there! I just want to start out by saying I don’t think I’m like a lot of your fans. I don’t own all your books (though I love them) nor your TFIOS surplus, simply because I can’t afford to. I’m not here to buy your love, I’m just here to say, well, I love your books.
I’m from a small town in Ohio, population 518. Here, there’s only 2 types of people, “the ones who are bound to stay or too dumb to go. Everybody else finds a way out” (Beautiful Creatures). I guess you could say I’ve been trying to make my escape through the nirvana of books. My dad used to say that fiction is the best vacation anyone can hope to go on. Even after things got hard, really hard, my dad still repeated the saying over and over again. I personally thought reading about characters who complained about not having enough of the things I’d had to give up felt like a slap to the face. So, slowly, I just….stopped.
Don’t worry about having to type fake sympathies; I’ll just leave it at I was going through a hard time. Makes it easier for both of us, eh?
I only found your books by chance, when I went to pick up a library book up off the floor and started dying laughing after I skimmed through the first page. Hazel, with her ANTM obsession and loner status, seemed more like a best friend to me than a character. And Augustus….everyone calls him perfect. I loved him simply because he wasn’t. He had flaws like every other teenager does. He tried too hard sometimes, he made a few lame jokes-hell, he didn’t even have both legs! He felt the like a real person….the book itself felt real. I loved that.
After TFIOS (and 10 tissue boxes) I slowly started reading again, started writing again. I found Looking for Alaska, and that was it for me. She was everything I am and everything I want to be. She was smart and proud of it, yet always the first one to go all-in at the first sign of adventure. A dreamer who saw reality, a girl depressed yet seemed more content than most, an open book yet died a mystery. She was an oxymoron within herself. She was anything but perfect. She drank and smoked and fucked-but it was okay. She wasn’t an alcoholic, or an addict, nor a whore. She was just Alaska-that’s all she needed to be.
I can’t believe I just described your own characters to you. Wow (*facepalm*).
Well, anyway, it might sound crazy, sir, but…Alaska’s death brought me back to life. If a girl like that could die so young and unexpectedly, I can too. And I sure as hell am not going to be buried 6ft under without making my mark on the world. Who knows, maybe I’ll even end up being as great as an author as you, eh? Haha I kid, I kid.
I’ve always wanted to be one of those writers who you always see in the coffee shop downtown, staring at their laptop (maybe one day I’ll be able to afford one) with overworked eyes and a coffee in hand, typing the chapters to their dream. Maybe one day we could even have lattes together :) haha.

The Motherfucking Fox xoxo
(or Eve for short, haha)


Theonie July 30, 2014 at 4:01 am

Talia Bonzala


Theonie July 31, 2014 at 3:57 am

Realy Talia?!!!!!


Georgia Cotterill July 30, 2014 at 2:56 pm

John Green,
I am writing (if this get read..?) to thank you for this amazing novel. I was first introduced to it by a friend and borrowed it to read which I secretly read twice! All I can say is that it is beautifully devastating! And the film made my mum and Nan cry along with all of my friends! Haha
Anyway, like Hazel and Gus with ‘Imperial Affliction’ wanting to know what happens after the novels finished, I was wondering what happens in The Fault In Our Stars, like for how long did Hazel live after Augustus’ death? I trust you are not as rude as Peter Van Gluten was at the start and that one off these days we shall all know what happens!
Another personal request is that The Fault In Our Stars fans all know of An Imperial Affliction and as you made it up, I think that it would be wonderful for you to write it and publish it! For us to really see why Hazel and Gus fell in love with it so deeply :)
Thanks for my time


Tanner Schmidt July 30, 2014 at 3:52 pm

Dear John Green,
I’m just gonna come out and say it. You are an amazing and thoughtful writer. You seem to care about your readers a lot and that is passionate.
Another thing is that your book has had me thinking about it everyday since I read it, and frankly, I had never had an experience with a book like that. I am a consecutive reader of many books. I have read the Twilight Saga, Harry Potter, Divergent Series, and many more. By far, The Fault in Our Stars is the best.
I have a few questions for you, and if you would email me back, that would be great. Just reply is you would.
First, Is there a relation between The Fault in Our Stars and An Imperial Afflicion? I just felt like that Hazel and Anna can have the same personality. Anna and Hazel dress the same as Peter Van Houten had made clear. They both suffered from cancer and Hazel one day is gonna die or be to sick to carry on with the adventures that we all love, which is what happened to Anna.
There is also that Peter and You. Not the rudiness or the alcohol problem, but the way you two express in writing and give lovely details. It is mind-blowing.
Second, What happens to Augustus’ parents? I mean, in the book it stated that parents divorce about a year after one or the only kid they have dies. Yes, Hazel parents already promised that they will be together, but Augustus never talked to his parents to make them promise. I think that is all. Thank you for your time!
Your Loving and Passionate Reader,
Tanner Schmidt


Beth Hibbert July 30, 2014 at 4:50 pm

Dear John Green,
I live in the UK and like most of your fans and like Hazel I wish to know what happens to her at the end of the book. She leaves on the amazing line of “I do Augustus I do” and not only do I start to cry I also long to find out wether she lives or her rubbish lungs fail her! I look forward to purchasing more of your books because I am sure they are as good as the fault in our stars!! I would love a reply but I do know you have millions of fans!
Thank you Beth :)


Dahlia B. July 30, 2014 at 4:59 pm

dear John Green(or whoever reads this),
Can you please make an email? It would be great because on Google+ LOTS of people love you. I would like to know, how did you so easily think of Margo Roth? I love Paper Towns and how funny Ben Starling is. Hes like the total book version of one of my friends also named Ben and I love how that is1 (even if he’s kinda a perv). Please Reply!



Alvaro Bergo July 30, 2014 at 5:43 pm

Dear Mr. Green.
A few weeks ago I finished reading your book paper towns, I really enjoyed this book and also watching the movie is the fault of the stars (because of my friend), for goodSo for as Hazel did, I wonder what he hears with Margo in cities of paper, she did return to visit Quentin?. Where Margo was after New York?..Would like your emai.even though it’s impossible to like a lot of their resposta.mesmo not giving much to understand what is escrito.queria thank you for this book because it changed my opinion on several very Deal


Gus Stovold July 30, 2014 at 7:25 pm

Hello Mr Green,
You’re an inspiration to mankind, thank you and your marvellously original mind and mentality. Did that get you hooked ? I hope so. I’ve recently read your best-seller and have many inquiries about it, but we’ll get to that, where are my manners ? My name is Augustus Mylo Jake Stovold, I’m british, but I live in France. I’m a huge fan of The Fault In Our Stars. I’m 14, and I have no major things that are wrong with my life, I’m normal, and that makes me abnormal, does it not? I also realise that you probably have thousands of questionnaires like this every day, so somehow, I need to make mine stick out. I came here with a purpose. And I sincerely hope that you find the time to give this a read, as I have found the time to write it, I also hope that you did not write the famous Peter Van Houten based on yourself.

The first is a simple yet meaningful query: Does Hazel Grace die before 20 ?, the second is slightly more personal, is the way Van Houten writes and expresses his feelings through a pen and paper; based around you and your way of doing said things? And is the bad in him a fictional form of the bad in you ? I hope that I’m not being too bold, it’s just that my curiosity is like a cancer cell, it will breed and develop until I find a way to stump it’s growth, and it never truly departs. The third question is about Isaac, I read up on his type of cancer, and it’s hereditary, does Graham get it too ? And do he and Monica ever get back together or do he and Hazel “get it on”, so to speak?

I realise that you most likely won’t read this, but a man can dream, can he not? I also realise that there is a situation where you may not know what happens to Hazel and Isaac that is highly likely, and if that is so, I would rather like to know. Thank you for your time,



Sristhi July 30, 2014 at 11:01 pm

tbh, I hate books. My friends have been telling me, “read it. Come on” and I was like, “Dude chill. If I have time, I will”.
After few days, I was admitted in the ICU. No phones and no electronics as usual. So my mom bought me your book. The fault in our stars. I started reading it. 10 pages done, 20, 30 and it went on. The doctors told me to stop reading the book as it was time for bed. I screamed at him, “Are you high? Gus is in the hospital. I have to be with him!”. He got annoyed and left. Few mins later I finished the book. Crying like I lost someone really close to me. Cried for days. And now, when I ask people if they’ve read it or not and they say “no”, I say. “WHAT THE FUDGE ARE YOU DOING WITH LIFE”.
Sir, TFIOS was my first book. You’re no less than a God. You made me fall in love with books. Your books.
I did watch the movie. 4 times. Cried every ingle time. Can’t wait for the cd to release India. Thank you so much :’)
You’re the best. Okay? Okay.
