Mr. Green,

Two of my friends and I need to make an APWH project, and we wanted to know if we are aloud to use your idea of ‘crash course’, and put it in our own way?


Emily May 18, 2015 at 7:27 pm

Dear Mr. Green,
I’m fourteen years old and I am obsessed with your book. You are truly a god at writing. I have read your book and watched your movie over and over that it would make your head spin. Fault in Our Stars was beautifully written. I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for giving me a beautiful story to read and an incredible movie to watch. I lost my great-grandmother to cancer 3 years ago. Thank you so much for helping me through that rough time. You are such an incredible writer.

Dear Mr. Green,
I just wanted to say that I really love your book. Im not a big reader but The fault in our star really captive my attention. Im waiting for my dad to take me to the book store to buy Paper Towns. I really love the qoutes and common sense ideas that The fault in our stars has Congrats for these amazing books.

Dear John Green,

Everyone here at Perry High School are big fans of your writing and youtube videos. Personally, Paper Towns is my favorite, followed by the Fault In Our Stars. The past few years our school would inspire young students to become authors, write and even read more in an event we call the Author Extravaganza. The event affected everyone from teachers, authors and students. It is because of the inspiration generated from the Author Extravaganza, our high school was able to have its first creative writing class in years. This fall our Library was shattered when we found out some unpleasant news. Our principal informed us that we could not use the same fundraising tactics because of the implication of new nutrition policies in high schools. I fear that without the funding or the publicity it may not last another year. The event is not open to just students in Perry High School, however, any school that would wish to come out for the day and learn. I am asking you can you please please come or at least support our campaign. I know we are a small town, and that being a famous author and all you must get a ton of letters but it would mean so much to all of us. This will be my senior year here at Perry High School and I would love for it to be carried on. In my opinion was one of the best parts of the school year. My wish is that the freshmen who are coming up, will have the same opportunity as I did. Please if you can spare ten seconds, or maybe fifteen if you have a slow wifi router, can you please check out what our High School is trying to pull off. The site link is

jhon green,
acabo de leer bajo la misma estrella, y aunque se que es un invento de la imaginacion y un gran libro, no pudo dejar de cuestionarme, de donde saco tanta honestidad para hablar del cancer en este libro, no lo se , espero que nunca haya tenido ninguna experiencia cercana al cancer, pero creo que eso responderia mi pregunta, soy un paciente con cancer desde los 10 años, y me han pasado cosas muy parecidas a las que cuenta en su libro, y aunque se que no soy la unica persona con cancer, creo que si soy de las personas a las que les encanta hablar con sinceridad del cancer, y aunque suene un poco irrelevante leer su libro, a despertado en mi un gran interes por escribir , aunque siempre lo hago no se si lo hago bien, pero bueno quiero agradecer por su libro, por su genialidad al escribir asi, por que pense que seria como todos los libros que hablan o se desarrollan al rededor del cancer, un firme y sincero agradecimiento desde colombia ,

Dear John Green,
I am writing to tell you about how much I enjoyed you book ‘The Fault In Our Stars’. It showed me that you can live your life and have fun, even if you have cancer. The book has inspired me and I have learnt a lot of new vocabulary and quotes while I was reading, like ‘Pain Demands To Be Felt’. I stayed up nearly every night to read some more and every chapter left me wondering what would happen next. I am hoping to read another on of your books, ‘Will Grayson. Will Grayson’ as I have heard many great things about it. I cant wait for the film of ‘Paper Towns’, it sounds very romantic and mysterious.

Yours Sincerely, Lauren

John Green,
I am currently doing a project on your An Abundance of Katherines for my school. If it is possible, could you tell me what inspired you to write the novel? Also, were some of Colin’s experiences based off of your own? Thanks so much!

Hello John Green,
I am doing my senior capstone project on your book “Paper Towns” and was wondering if you had ever read anything by Thomas Merton or were influenced by him in anyway?

Esra May 22, 2015 at 1:37 pm

Dear John Green,
I know that you will never right a Sequel to “The Fault in Our Stars” and I guess there shouldn’t be one but i still want to know what happens to some characters.I’d love to know what happens to Hazel.I know she’ll probably die but is there somethinng specific that she will do before she dies? Like going to Gus’s grave or what happens with Isaac will he find someone who will stay with him for the rest of his life?What about Peter Van Houten will he change ? After Gus’s death will he be nicer or will he continue to stay mean?
I really appreciate your books and all of the hard work.I also like to buy your books in english and not german (I live in Germany) ’cause than they just seem better to me.
Your sincerely Esra


Anika Davis Hamp May 22, 2015 at 3:00 pm

Dear John Green,

why did you make the setting for that chapter constant rain? Is there any significance behind it or just the mood?
Oh, and my final exams for reading are about ‘Looking For Alaska’ I’d like to know as much as possible about the book, and behind the book. Even if its as small as why it rained so much. Thank You.



Dhita Jeremy May 23, 2015 at 4:56 am

dear Mr. Green..

i’m very like your story, The Fault In Our Stars make me so sad.. can you make a story about long distance? i want your inspiration.. I want to see you.. i hope you read my little word, sorry if i so not clear. Thank You..



Marie Binda May 23, 2015 at 7:17 am

Dear John green
My name is Marie binda and I have fourteen years old. I’m French and I don’t speak English. But I am writing this message because I’ve read both your books
“The Fault In Our Stars” and ” Looking for Alaska” and… I adored these two books. “The fault In Ours Stars” is my favorite book. This books speak about my biggest fear, The death. By reading these books I understood many thing. We can escape the life but we cannot escape death. The life is worth being lived. But how can one cannot think that there is a death in the rear. I like your way of writing and of telling the life. You him made in a simple way without hiding the fears and without embellishing the reality. I adored your books and I admire you so much ! So thank, your books are brilliant and you are a writer very talented. You are my favorite writer

Sorry if there are faults
And thank you…



Pollara Anaëlle May 23, 2015 at 7:52 am

Hello Mr. Green

I’m French and I ‘m fascinated by your books and especially “Looking For Alaska” and I have several questions that turns me in my head, to start I would love to have more details on his death, was it a suicide or an accident? Why was she killed her … The other issues are that I wanted to know the reaction of Chip on the letter of Takumi whether Lara was always a relationship with Miles but especially … Could you make a movie ! Sorry but not knowing their head disturbs me constantly and precisely that’s the mystery of pounds in short all that to say that you are my preferred author and I know you will not read this message but I would continue to be because I believe life with the hope that one day I would get out of this labyrinth of suffering …

Sincerely A fan of your books . :)


Harneek Kaur May 23, 2015 at 11:17 am

Hello Mr John Green,

I would just like to tell you that I have read your book; ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ several times, and every time I read it, I end up crying. It’s a fictional book and I understand that, but these type of things happen to people everyday.

My aunty is a three time cancer survivor who has suffered from breast cancer but has survived. Unfortunately, over the last 6 months she has gotten cancer again. She’s at the stage were she will die since the cancer has reached her brain and will eventually stop her body. She has not got long left Mr John Green.

I adore your book Sir, but I am annoyed at the fact that it’s just left there, like a cliffhanger. Yes Augustus dies, but does Hazel survive from her own cancer? Does Isaac regain his eyesight? If Hazel doesn’t survive, will her parents stay together? Does her mum become a counsellor, another Patrick? Does Monica ever date Isaac again? Does Hazel ever love again? Does anyone ever have a future instead of a sad depressed life of misery and tears after Augustus Waters had died? All of these questions are just swimming through my head and have been flooding it for over a year now, I just need answers… especially now since I need to know how we will handle my aunty’s death and if we will ever get over the fact that she will be gone.

I need to know sir, please. I understand you must be exceedingly busy but please, I need to know. This is all true, every bit of it. None of this is made up, not my aunty’s illness, the fact she will die probably in the next week or so, it’s all true. I just need an answer. Does Hazel ever get along with her life, or does Augustus’ death haunt her for the rest of her life? I just need a simple answer, yes or no.

I hope you can get back to me, I would honestly appreciate it a lot.
If you are reading this, just know this book has opened my eyes entirely.

Thank you Mr John Green, for completely changing my life.
Yours Sincerely, Harneek Kaur

Alexandra Hrmová May 24, 2015 at 1:35 pm

Dear Mr Green,
at first I have to say I really love your books, but that´s not the reason I´m here. I know you will probably never write me back, but I told myself that I have to try it, because just look at Hazel and Gus right? I want to ask, if Looking for Alaska will be filmed too. It´s one of the best books I´ve ever read. And I also want to ask if there is any chance that Kaya Scodelario or Taissa Farmiga and Logan Lerman could play in the movie?
Me and my friends agreed that they would be absolutely perfect for the film.


Kathleen May 24, 2015 at 1:36 pm

Dear Mr John Green,
I’m writing this comment to let you know that your book The Fault In Our Stars has meant a big deal to many people including myself. I have this feeling inside that you won’t see this but, it is a 50/50 chance. But i’m not the one to doubt.


gabryelle May 24, 2015 at 3:17 pm

  I’m here to talk about what and I found the book to blame and stars I read I was depressed because I think ops in my opinion you destroyed an irreverent love that had everything to work out what? so by the waters Augustus had cancer he had to die and leave the hazel grace suffering that’s what happened this ja ta pounding in my head for a long time to say since I read the book and watch your movie more have to declare you are a great writer more missed at the end of the film and book now a question what happens with hazel after Augustus dies? she will also die or will meet a new love? Isaac and he gets the monica? I think I should have a continuation why I’m mega fan of the book that was the best ficciticio book I’ve ever read and it really otimo already lost count of how many time I read why he and otimo’m your number one fan ja I read your book city paper .More fell in love it was for Guilt and stars my god fantastic book that many people I know also loved his .ah book and became a fan because of me and my school all my friends ask for me to do work for them when they vain talk about your book they say that school and the world

Deat Mr. Green,
I am very passionate about writing and have been since I was little. I am trying to write a novel and have too many ideas. I have no idea what to write about anymore. I want to be like you. But I have no idea how to get there. How did you figure out what you wanted to write about? And once you did, how did you make it so others could fall in love with your characters, and story the way you did? I have no idea what I am supposed to do and I could really use your advice. If you read this and have time to respond I will be forever greatful. Thanks again.

I really fell in love with each of his books.

My sincere thanks for making my life change ,

j’ai adoré votre livre,nos étoiles contraires mais il fini un peu comme celui de Van Houten. on ne sait pas se que devient Hzel, meurt-elle longtemps après Gus ou juste après. merci de lire mon courrier


Lily S. May 25, 2015 at 5:02 pm

Regards to John Green:
I absolutely adore your writing. Like, completely and entirely. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve re-read your books; your insight is brilliant. However, I thought of something the other day (whilst re-reading LFA for quite possibly the thousandth time)….I’ve been re-reading these books for a pretty long time. I’m ecstatic over the new movies, and although there’s certainly nothing wrong or boring about re-reading these books, I was wondering if there’s any chance that you plan on writing something more. I really would l0ve to see another book, and I’m sure everyone else would as well. Though of course, it is your life, and no one could hold you down and force you to write another book. (Would that be efficient? It could end up being counterproductive just as well.) But anyway, it would be great to hear back on this, and I wish for you all the best on the upcoming movies, and anything else you may choose to do on the matter.
