Flash Post: Green Pages
What It Is: A box set of four incredible titles from Printz award-winning author John Green. I first encountered his spellbinding debut, Looking For Alaska, a couple of years ago and instantly fell in love with Green’s writing style (apparently, so did the rest of the world). Since then I’ve been slowly savouring his titles, reading An Abundance of Katherines and his holiday collab with two other authors Let It Snow. The beginning of 2012 also marked the release of his buzziest title to date – the cancer patient story The Fault In Our Stars which has been capturing the hearts and minds of literary critics, adults, and teens alike. Green’s four standalone titles (he has another collab book that’s not in this set) are available together for the first time in a must-have addition to any avid reader’s library. For serious, can’t say enough good things about the guy.
Who It’s For: Your wannabe writer teenage niece, to break her heart and open her mind simultaneously. Your friend that loves the surge of YA fiction, but hasn’t strayed too far from the overly popular fantasy realm just yet. Your teacher sibling, to help them get teens, even if it’s written by an adult.
What It Costs: List price is $79 for all four books, although I found it online for about $52.
Where It’s At: I spotted the collection at my local Indigo and knew I had to write about it, given Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. You can of course, also buy it online.
