The year-old Kenyon College graduate has written several popular novels, but stayed largely out of the spotlight with his wife and two children in Indianapolis, Indiana—until now. So a few weeks ago when a huge group of teen girls gathered outside the Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills, it was easy to assume that the crowd was waiting there for the author. Bieber's presence in the same hotel is ironic since Glee star Chris Colfer once referred to the author as "the Justin Bieber of the literary world. Throughout our conversation, Green seemed both bewildered and not at all fazed by the fame he's earned from the tale of two star-crossed teenagers, Hazel Grace Lancaster Woodley and Augustus Waters Elgort , who deal with cancer and falling in love simultaneously. It's a remarkably beautiful and tragic book and the film adaptation, out Friday, is equally beautiful and equally tragic. It's a story that resonates universally, even if that story was initially written for the teen crowd.
The Fault In Our Stars is a fabulous book about a young teenage girl who has been diagnosed with lung cancer and attends a cancer support group. Hazel is 16 and is reluctant to go to the support group, but she soon realises that it was a good idea. Hazel meets a young boy named Augustus Waters. He is charming and witty. Augustus has had osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, but has recently had the all clear.

Aside from being a novelist, Green is also well known for his YouTube ventures. In , he launched the VlogBrothers channel with his brother, Hank Green.
The adaptation of the best-selling novel by John Green follows a young teen diagnosed with cancer who goes about living her life as normally as she can. Though the book is inspired by a young woman who lost her battle with thyroid cancer , the story is a work of fiction. Recently, we caught up with Green and asked about his decision to write a fictional book about cancer. To research the book, Green says he spoke with a lot of people familiar with the disease and read a lot of material on the subject. Ultimately, Greene says his decision behind writing the book was to write about illness. A lot of times I think that, from the outside, maybe we imagine sick people as being defined by their illness or as being simply, merely sick.
