Hi John Green! My name is Emma. I would like to give you my opinion about Looking for Alaska & Paper Towns the movie. I don’t know if you would read this or not but really I’d appreciate it so much if you do. At least you see this.

I’m a huge fan of you, and I’m a huge fan of your books, especially Looking For Alaska (idk how to be a book huge fan but let’s not go there). I’ve been looking for someone who are great to play as the characters of the book (the main only, sorry) and here’s my thoughts.

Since 3 months ago, I see Emma Roberts as Alaska Young. Why? Because she’s really badass. Her face shows me that she’s happy, but also cool and kind of sad. She’s pretty confidence too that’s why.

But, recently people on twitter keeps tweeting that they want Kaya Scodelario as Alaska. I want it too, but I can’t see her as Alaska because her face is too sweet. Alaska must be really depressed and sad in the end, and I can’t see it on Kaya’s face.

And for the Pudge I choose Freddie Highmore and I don’t want to change it. Many people want Dylan O’Brien as Pudge, of course I do want him too but he’s already have a relationship with Kaya at TMR (The Maze Runner) and I don’t want them to be overrated. It’s hard to see your favorite actors become overrated.

For Paper Towns, I feel kinda sad because Nat Wolff will play as Q. I really really want Dylan O’Brien as Q and Adelaide Kane as Margo. Even that at first I want Claire Boucher as Margo but since she’s a music producer I think she couldn’t do it. Why I choose Dylan O’Brien as Q? First, I don’t want Nat become so overrated (again). Second, Dylan and Adelaide have such a cute relationship and Dylan is the type of a guy who can’t let things go so easily. And Adelaide seems like Margo, I hope she can play as Margo perfectly. Claire Boucher is Margo in real life. Trust me, she’s so unexpected and really really out of the box.

But, It’s all your choice. That’s all my opinion. You can do whatever you want and you can choose whatever you want. I believe you choose the actors correctly and I believe you do the best of you. I just want to share this because it’s too long if I tweet you and I don’t have any facebook (maybe Tumblr).

Thank you so much if you see/read this. And thank you so much for all of your books. They saved my life and you saved my life too. Sorry I can’t give you anything and sorry if my opinion is kinda rude but really idk how to do with it.

But, I trust you John. Always.

Thank you again,

{UPDATED}Dear John Green,
For the past while I have been trying to come up with something amazing and very literary to say to you, because I thought that if I didn’t you would never read this. Before you continue reading, if you are actually reading this, I would like to inform you that I failed. I failed at coming up with some sort of beautiful note for you to read.
If you do end up reading this, I guarantee you I will definitely end up crying my eyeballs out. You are, without hesitation, my favourite author, and there are so many things I would like to say to you that I simply cannot express in this comment. First of all, I know I’m speaking for all those fangirls out there when I say, Mr. Green you have done a great injustice. I read The Fault in our Stars, and I’ve been trying to read it again but I just can’t. The reason for this is: you can literally throw the hardcover book full force at my face, with the pointy part at my eye and I still wouldn’t be in as much pain as you put me in when you wrote the book. Now, I realize that it is fiction and the characters cease to exist outside of the book, however; nevertheless you caused me great pain, that’s also one of the reasons I love the book. If there are words that could describe your book, I would be writing them, but there aren’t. During the book you made me laugh and you made me cry.
I’ve also seen the movie. I went to see it with my friends on June 6th, unfortunately tickets were sold out on The Night Before our Stars, but what I’m getting at is that the moment I started crying is also the moment that the 20th Century Fox logo showed up on screen.
Another thing I wanted to bring up is the fact that Hazel dies a year after Augustus. If that’s so, what about Isaac? Does he just live a healthy but lonely life forever?
I have also been reading your other books, such as Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns, and I’m still reading An abundance of Katharine’s; and they are all incredible as well, though I have realized that so far you haven’t ended a book in which the two main characters actually end up together. I promise you I will read anything and everything that you decide to write. Frankly I’d read your grocery list. (Btw I also watch your vlogs). John green, I can full heartedly say that you are an undeniably incredible man.
I guess it’s true that pain demands to be felt, because your book caused me so much sadness and I wish from the bottom of my heart that you did not kill him. But the world is not a wish granting factory and because of that I forgive you. Okay John Green?
