Inside Out and Back Again or The Fault in Our Stars?

No question, really.  As much as I respect Inside Out and Back Again, and think that it could really find a place in our classrooms, The Fault in Our Stars is something special.

How special?  Check out this tumblr, where kids wrote in and asked questions of John Green upon completing the book:

Anything that inspires this level of critical thinking and literary analysis while making you laugh out loud and sob simultaneously is OK by me.  I think most of the tumblr questions have been re-organized into a more manageable format here:  http://johngreenbooks.com/questions-about-the-fault-in-our-stars-spoilers/

My Zombie Pick?  Again, not even a question.  If you haven't read Everybody Sees the Ants, I urge you to do so.  Perfect book for grade 9 or 10.
