Those of you who yearn for the bygone days of the Brotherhood 2.0 Scavenger Hunt (or are looking forward to the release of my new book Paper Towns) should check out, a new site Hank and I have been working on. (Click on “Major Facts” to get started; if you poke around long enough, you’ll find the answer to that question people keep asking.) If you find the Easter Egg, feel free to discuss in comments (I hope you think it’s as awesome as I do!), but please don’t spoil the hunt for others.

(To answer the question that will be asked the most: Yes, Paper Towns will have two different covers! Cool, huh?)

I kind of felt at first that your books be came so increasingly popular, [ I mean that's great and all for you] but they were almost ruined by the main-stream, trend-e-ness of it all. But then again, I almost want to take it back becaus eyour writing is this beautiful feeling, like when you go swimming for the first time in the summer, after your sun-baked to a crisp, and you walk around to the diving board and just jump, no cannonball or swan dive, just a sloppy “erplop” and it feels so good, like being in cased by jello. That’s how much joy you bring me. So far I’ve read [in this order,] The Fault in Our Stars, This star won’t go out,[felicitations on the intro by the way] and Paper towns. [by far my favorite, kind of came off as romeo and juliet when i thought you-know-who was dead, i thought the-other-you-know-who was going to kill themselves.] I plan on starting Looking for Alaska, Then An Abundance of Kathrines [ I most definetly did not spell that correctly] then the rest [not sure what order i dont own them yet :) ] So ‘dank u’ [its not spelled wrong look it up] for creating a fantasy i could live in and feel and escape and not be me for a while because sometimes thats anybody I’d like to be sometimes…

Your writing is amazing. I always sit and read them. Whenever I finish one I get this feeling of abandonment and sadness. Your books throw me into another reality and its so hard to come to here and now. Thank you, your writing is a great escape.
