John Green
Biography
John Green was born August 24, 1977 in Indiana but was raised in Orlando, Florida. Green attended Kenyon College majoring in English and Religious Studies. He began a youtube series called "Crash Course," an educational program about history literature and chemistry, and became youtube famous. He wrote his first book "Looking for Alaska" based on his experiences in school. He is married to Sarah Green and now has two children, Henry and Alice Green. He is also very close with his brother Hank Green (Landquist).
Looking for Alaska
Miles Halter, remembers last words, and is tired of being a goody goody, falls into the sexy, clever, and substance abuser, Alaska Young's labyrinth into the "Great Perhaps." Alaska lives in a self loathing shadow that she has drug Miles into to live with her, but even though everything was dark, everything was beautiful
(Alaska).
Paper Towns
Quenten Jacobsen has been loving Margo Spiegelman from afar for years. The mystery wrapped up in a dress has opened a small crack in the window of opportunity to help her in her revenge, and hopefully get closer to her. When she dissipates she left clues for Q to follow, but as time goes on it seems more and more like a wild goose chase when he looses more and more of the girl he loves (Paper).
The Fault in Our Stars
Hazel Grace Landcaster is forced by her parents to go to a cancer support group in "the literal heart of Jesus" (i.e. basement of a church where they sit in a circle, drink juice, and listen to the leader tell the same story about how he had cancer but God helped him overcome it etc. etc.) Life was pretty much the same every day, watching America's Next Top Model and reading, until she met Augustus Waters. Even though life isn't a wish granting factory, and Hazel will always be terminal, Augustus is going to try to grant her final(?) wish, but what is he willing to give up to do so (Green)?
Conclusion

John Green became popular so quickly for several reasons. Probably the largest reason is his honesty. Green doesn't sugar coat the world, and he uses characters that are typically introverts, outcasts, and the "little guy." Most authors write about someone who ends up being significantly important or their lives are unbelievably interesting, they are just regular people with regular lives that are a little sad. Another reason is probably his style of writing. Green is sarcastic, spastic, and is quite poetic. I don't think there is a hipster in existence that hasn't quoted him at some point. Lastly, his books will leave you thinking for months on
end and cry your heart out. So go out
and read all of them.
Author's Style
John Green writes about teenagers with some sort of problem. Whether it be substance abuse or cancer, they have a lot to deal with. There is also always a morale to his stories, he never writes for the sake of writing. He is sarcastic, hilarious, and uses an abundance of figurative language.
An Abundance of Katherines
You could say every guy has an idea of the "perfect girl," and for Colin Singleton the perfect girl is Katherine. In fact he has dated, and been dumped by, 19 Katherines so far. You will follow Collin and his Judge-Judy-loving bestie Hassan on their journey to prove Collin's mathematical theorem to predict the outcome of any relationship, probably with another Katherine. (Abundance)
Will Grayson,
Will Graywon
One faithful evening Will Grayson met.. Will Grayson. When their worlds collide everything changes. Will Grayson's own set of unbreakable rules will be broken. Romantic adjustments of heart and unexpected changes in both Wills lives may alter things forever (Green and
Levithan).
