The Fault in Our Stars

  

by John Green

Analysis: Trivia

Brain Snacks: Tasty Tidbits of Knowledge

The book is dedicated to Esther Earl, a young cancer patient who inspired John Green with her humor and, well, normalcy. (Source.)

In case you were wondering, John Green never considered ending The Fault in Our Stars mid-sentence a la An Imperial Affliction. Whew. (Source.)

Get this: John Green had considered telling the story from Isaac's point of view, but ultimately decided on giving the honors to Hazel. Imagine how different the story would have been. (Source.)

In very very early drafts, The Fault in Our Stars involved a group of children with cancer meeting in a cave for a club called The Dead Persons Society. Hmmm. (Source.)
