Welcome to the discussion page for The Fault in Our Stars! Scroll down to meet the editors, read blogs, and discuss the book with other readers in the comments.
Zoë Triska, Associate Editor. I admit that I'm one of those people who Googles phrases, places, names every couple of pages when I'm reading. There are constantly things that stump me, though so I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Andrew Losowsky, Books Editor. I look for stories to take my brain into new spaces, and I'll be particularly discussing the facts as we think we know them, and the clues I think we're being given by the story.
Annemarie Dooling, Community Editor. Locations and descriptions speak to me the same way characters do. If you read the same books over and over again the way I do, we're going to get along just fine.
Elizabeth Perle, Teen Editor. I can't stand writers who use "teen speak" to try talk to young people (LOLS OMG SWOON), and I like my YA like I like my coffee: strong, sharp, not watered down, and with kick-ass female characters.
Taylor Trudon, Associate Teen Editor. I'm a sucker for well-hidden inspirational quotes and have been known to develop crushes on YA fictional characters. I read "Little Women" in middle school and still haven't fully recovered from the death of Beth March.
