The Fault in Our Stars vs Inside Out and Back Again

The Fault in Our Stars vs Inside Out and Back Again

As much as I appreciated “Inside Out and Back Again” (and am not surprised by the recognition it has received), the story and the manner in which it was shared, there is no question though that the novel I wish to see advance is “The Fault in Our Stars”. It is a novel that engaged me from the start, made me laugh out loud, shed some tears and reflect a bit about life. I began reading the book one morning before the start of the school day and ended up finishing it later that night at home. I have since book talked the novel to the language arts classes I teach and a few of the students have already completed reading it was well. The students have loved the book, have gone on to recommend it to their family and friends and are now interested in reading other novels by John Green. Our conversations about the book – the characters and the story – have been rich and animated.
My vote: The Fault in Our Stars
Zombie Pick: Raven Boys
