Dear Mr.John Green
Hi, my name is Hannah and I am a fan of the Fault In Our Stars both book and movie. I was wondering if you had the time to answer a few questions I have about the book mostly about what happens to hazel at the end of the book and Isaac. Like does he die or find another girl? And does Hazel die or continue to live a dreadful life because that’s the thing pain demands to be felt. And does Hazel’s parents die or does her mom continue to do that counseling thing? These questions have crossed my mind since I read the book and watched the movie. I know what it’s like to loose someone very close to you ( as I have lost a friend to cancer) and I have very strong hopes that you or your friend can answer or at least email me some answers to my questions. (My email is it would mean the world to me to even hear from you! If you happen to write any more books I would gladly read them!
Quite frankly I’d read your grocerie lists
Please answer
Sincerely yours
Hannah Patzer
P.S I live in yellowknife a small town in the N.W.T and enjoy reading and writing

Dear Mr. John Green,
Hello my name is Christine and I am a HUGE fan of your book The Fault in Our Stars and I am also a fan of the movie. I just have a few questions for you. 1. Did you ever thing about ending the book in mid-sentence? The first time I read the book I was very scared that you would end the book that way. 2. What happens to Hazle and Issac after the books ends? I must know it drives me insane not to know. 3. Would you ever consider writing a sequel to The Fault in Our Stars? Explaining what happened to Hazle, Issac, and Hazle’s parents.
If you have time I would love to learn the answers to the questions I have asked. my email is (( )) It would mean the world to me to hear from you! Also if you write any more books I would be more then happy to buy and read them.
Quite frankly I would read your groceries lists.
Please respond.
Sincerely yours,
Christine Fulton.
P.S If you do answer I promise I will not go and exploit your work I will keep it to my self.

Hello John!

How are you? Im going to be honest with you! I havent read you books, but the other day, the girl I love most in the whole world took me to watch it. At first i thought the movie was just going to be another boring chick flick. Truthfully, I enjoyed watching the movie a lot! Watching it made me change the way I see life! Im writing to tell you that Adela (the girl I love) is obsessed with you. She loves you and thinks you are the greatest man alive! She even memorised many quotes in your book The Fault In Our Stars. I wanted to know if you could just reply, saying hello to Adela. She wants to change the world, and your her inspiration!

Thank You!

okay , so I have never done this before but I just have to say I’m upset. So I’ve read and re-read and re-read over and over . The book is amazing don’t get me wrong but you made Gus and hazel go crazy not knowing what happens to the people in the book .Well did it occur to you that we, us the fans go crazy not knowing what happens to Hazel , Isaac, her mom,and dad?
My soul shall not rest till I get answer.


audrey July 23, 2014 at 12:28 pm

John Green,
I do not expect an answer. I do not expect you to even read this. But I do want to say that I am so impressed that an author is actually writing about something that makes people think. And makes people question. And writes about something meaningful and beautiful. And I’m sure a million people (literally) have already said this but I just want to make sure that it is known that you are probably (who am I kidding? definitely) the best author of our generation. That is all.

Elizabeth Tarter July 23, 2014 at 1:48 pm

Dear Mr. John Green,
My name is Elizabeth Tarter I’m from Webb City, MO. I am a HUGE fan of your book “The Fault In Our Stars” as well as the movie. I just have a few questions though. First, why did you kill off Gus, and not Hazel? It crushed me when he died both in the movie and the book. Why didn’t you let there romance flourish? My second question is, even if Gus did live would Hazel have died instead? Or would they just all live? My third question is, since Gus did died would Isaac and Hazel like hook up, or just be friends? Finally, my last question is, if you could go back in time to when you were writing the book what would you change about it? Thank you so much for reading this I can’t wait to hear back!! Thank you!:)
Elizabeth Tarter

Dear Mr Green,
I am aware that you yourself, will not be receiving this message. But I would really appreciate it if it was forwarded or at least you were told that I think you are, lets face it sir, you are awesome and have an amazing talent. Your books are- for lack of better vocabulary- awesome! I really like the way you ended the book The Fault in Our Stars. It is a little annoying, but very clever. Anyway, my friends and I are huge fans and you are now my inspiration! I hope someday I’ll be as good as you- although you a very poetic and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to live up to that. I don’t really have a question, but more of a wish (even though the world is not a wish-granting factory)…please keep on writing forever! I’ll read anything you write!

Cher monsieur John Green,
pardonner-moi si j’écris mal mais je n’ai pas votre talent, je vous écris pour vous dire que votre livre ” Nos étoiles contraires” est vraiment magnifique, moi même ayant plusieurs personnes de ma famille atteint du cancer (dont ma mère qui a réussi a survivre et un homme assez proche de notre famille qui n’a malheureusement pas survécu) je voulais vous dire que vous un talent gargantuesque, tous ce que vous avez écrit dans ce livre est vrai, dans ce livre vous faites preuves d’une telles réalités que nous avons l’impression de vivre cette histoire avec les personnages. Alors je vous dis merci, merci de montrer aux personnes ce qu’est la maladie, qu’il faut profiter de la vie tant qu’on peut. Pour moi “Nos étoiles contraires” montre le summum de votre génie !
Sincèrement Kathleen

rosie towler July 23, 2014 at 3:14 pm

Dear Mr John Green,
You are amazing writer and you are one of the authors that have inspired me to become a author when I’m older.If you don’t mind I have a question.Hazel and Augustus both say that An Imperial Affliction finished so suddenly so I was wondering if hazel dies as in my opinion I think the book ended sadly but suddenly.If you could reply that would be great but I don’t mind if you don’t.

Tristan Spears July 23, 2014 at 3:59 pm

Dear John Green,
As a reader of your books, I would like to tell you that you have brought me enjoyment from reading your books, but you have also killed me. do you know how many of your fans are hoping or pretending to have cancer after reading “The Fault In Our Stars” hoping to find their Augustus Waters. We all are hoping we will find our Augustus Waters, but people are seriously hoping they have cancer. I’m not dising on your writing. I LOVE your books, and in your books are some amazing quotes. I would really love it if you would contact me back. I admire you deeply, and I would really love to talk to you. My email is

Xesca Gelabert July 23, 2014 at 4:38 pm

Dear John Green,
I’m a big fan who writes you from Spain. I have to say that the book `The fault in our stars´caught all my attention and, thanks to your book, I’ve become a big fan of yourself. My main question is what happens with Hazel, does she die or do the doctors find a miraculous treatment for her cancer? (But I suppose that, as in ‘An imperial affliction’, she dies suddenly) Also I would love to read `The fault in our stars´ from the point of view of Augustus Waters, to know how does he feel a year before he is diagnosticated of cancer to the day of his death, passing through the romance with Hazel. I don’t expect an answer (although I would love to receive one), but I’m just in peace with myself once I’ve asked you about the book. My email address is
Thank you very much for your attention,
Xesca Gelabert


Javiera July 23, 2014 at 6:25 pm

Mr John Green
All I want to apologize if there are spelling errors, my excuse to possible failures before is to use a translator since Latin am more specifically chile. I would like to communicate through this humble but long text that you are my example to follow, I would like to travel to the United States learn English and develop me as a writer (and if you read this perhaps will pass by his mind thought of – because go to United States to carry out their projects? – well I will give you the answer I don’t feel happy in Chile, since they do not appreciate the true artists or philosophers think exclusive up to censor them, shades I the soul lack of culture in the new generations and inspired contributes to that but I intend to work hard and save to meet that cherished dream that won’t let me breathe quietly hope having given a good answer). A long time ago was looking for a book which would please me and It will captivate and I found your beautiful book under the same star that please me and Captivate me currently holds a place in my mind and in my heart.The first time I heard the title of the blessed book quite caught my attention and research on, and to discover the main base, you rogue a mis parents who buy it me, after many pleas that they were worth at last have it in my hands and I have to confess that I drown in their lyrics, remember that not I went to the bathroom all day, and it was that I didn’t want to separate from the book and gloriously done in one day I searched all the libraries in my city for his other works but unfortunately here in Chile are not, and I ask you to please take the issue. I have too many things I want to Express but I find that this medium is not appropriate (later I will tell you the because).I want to thank you for making possible this, you achieved something that no written had achieved in me a long time ago that it was not crying for I am very reserved but you definitely succeed. In his book is a source of inspiration. Now explain you the because I can not find this medium It is not adequate and that perhaps you never see what I’ve written to him, but I certainly have faith they will do so. After all the faith and hope is last so that it loses.
PostScript: I’m sorry if too extend the Charter, but I would not feel satisfied if not express myself fully.

Javiera says goodbye cordially

Not be if it is necessary but I have 13 years of age.


Emma Craney July 23, 2014 at 7:05 pm

Mr John Green,

I am completely in love with ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ and ‘Looking For Alaska’.

Since I read ‘The Fault In Our Stars’, I felt the urge to read ‘An Imperial Affliction’ and was devastated to find that this book does not exist. I keep wondering whether or not you have ever thought about writing ‘An Imperial Affliction’ as I would absolutely love to read this non-existent book.

Thank you, Emma.


Ani July 23, 2014 at 7:55 pm

Lourdes Romagnoli July 23, 2014 at 8:06 pm

Hello John Green, I spent some days thinking that I really wanted to write you an e-mail. And I spent another several days wondering in my head how in this world would I get your e-mail adress… Suddenly, it all came clear. Something really special created by a even more special person called Bill Gates: the Internet. So, here I am, after realizing my stupidity, writing you this e-mail-like-thing I really hope you read.
If you do so I want to tell you that I am a BIG fan of your work, but as I am currently living on Argentina it is very difficult for me to get all your books (which stresses me a lot, you know). I just wanted to let you know (I guess you already know) that you have made many people happy! Specially me! You know why? I had lost fate in humanity. No, don´t you think that I am about to say that your books saved my life and prevented me of sleeping on the train rail, not like that. Actually, your books have been so good, and have had such an incredible advertisement, and such an amazing movie (really I couldn´t stop crying in the whole film) that you have made it possible for more young people like me to get interested in books. Which I thought, at this point, was really a hard task to accomplish.
Usually when I tell teenagers that my hobby is reading they have this strange look on their faces where they are just like “How do I sound nice saying “OK, BYE”?”. So, the thing is, your books are different. People are not afraid of reading your books, no one will criticize a young person for reading a John Green book… and that leads to people even thinking that liking books is a normal thing! Do you know what you have accomplished? I MEAN! I couldn´t even mention my passion before you! People even post theirselves reading TFiOS or Looking For Alaska in Instagram! That´s crazy isn´t it?
So, I will stop freaking you out right now… Thank you so so so much for making reading a natural and nice thing for teenagers!
Sincerely, a young and hopeful reader.
Ps: If you want, would you follow me on my twitter account? (@Luli_Romagnoli) Thanks!
Ps 2: Please thank all your editors and managers and advertising people and etc for their excellent work on filling this young society with CULTURE.


Kasie July 23, 2014 at 11:25 pm

I love your book The Fault in Our Stars so much. I cried every time Augustus looked like he was going to die and then even more when he really did die. i like the fact that you made him die. Not very many authors make a main character die.


Kasie July 23, 2014 at 11:30 pm

Dear John Green,
I love your book the Fault in Our Stars. After reading I decided I want to read An Imperial Affliction. You should turn it into a real book someday. I think many people would like to read it. Don’t give it an ending just like in The Fault in Our Stars.


Parker Elizabeth July 24, 2014 at 3:05 am

Dear Mr.Green, you are truly my biggest inspiration. I love both the movie & the book, though, in my opinion, the movie is no comparison to the book! I am a teenage girl with ADD, ADHD, & Dyslexia. However I’ve read your book cover to cover a total of 31 times without a single issue. Now, I would be cliché by typing this the same way Hazel typed her email to Van Houten, but I prefer to be outside the “norm”. I am only fourteen years of age (soon to be fifteen), but your book has made a remarkable & inexplainable impact on my life. One of the many important things I’ve learned from reading your astounding book is that I should never take me life for granted, for I never truly know, one day I could be put in a situation like Hazel’s. Which I pray to God doesn’t happen but as I said, I never truly know. You are my favorite author of all time, your work is genially outstanding. I look forward to reading the rest of the lovely books that you have written & published.

With true admiration,
Parker Elizabeth. ❤️

*P.S* Elizabeth is not my last name, it is my middle name. I didn’t put my last name for personal reasons of course.


Parker Elizabeth July 24, 2014 at 3:27 am

That I should never take my* life for granted.

with thanks,
a fan


tala July 24, 2014 at 5:25 am

ps. my email is it would give great pleasure if you replied



Isabella J July 24, 2014 at 6:10 am

Dear Mr. John Green,
My name is Isabella and I live all the way in Australia (This is just a letter starter as I am quite horrible at starting things). I have read two of your books so far and am on my third (Paper Towns if you need to know), and I have some questions to ask to you about your books.

1) In your book Looking for Alaska it has always made me wonder about what happens to the rest of the characters after, I mean Pudge and The Colonel find out about Alaska’s death but does everyone else? 2) In The Fault In Our Stars I guess I would kind of like to know if Hazel lives to an old age, still mourning over her teenage romance with Gus or does she die young, happy to finally see him again?

It would be FABULOUS to hear a response from you.
(My email is to reply)
PS I am sorry about spelling errors as I am quite bad at writing.
PPS I also apologise for any random capitalisation in this letter it is because I find it unfair to the rest of the sentence in the middle that doesn’t get a capital letter to make it feel special.
PPPS I also like the rest of your fans would quite frankly read your grocery list, not because of insanity and obsession but because i am curious on how you and other people set out there items on a page. (Sorry that sounds weird)
Thank you for reading this if you are
Sincerely yours
Isabella J :)


Emily July 24, 2014 at 7:19 am

Dear John.

Your books inspire me. They have gotten me through tough times as a teenager, i saw your movie, “The Fault In Our Stars” on my birthday this year (22/07/14) and i absolutely loved it. You have given me so many great quotes, that i actually have pinned up all over my bedroom wall. After seeing The Fault In Our Stars, i immediately went home, looked you up on the internet, to get hold of you, just like Hazel Grace did with the author of her favourite book, i was quiet upset to see that there were only links to things i didn’t need, i would love to hear from you John Green. Please contact me via email if you ever read this message. I am an Australian girl, who has many dreams of becoming a big writer, like you. I want my books to reach America, like yours reached Australia.

Sincerely Emily. –
