Out of John Green Books?

He hasn’t really written that many. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But maybe it means you read them all. Some suggestions from Henrico librarians (click book covers to find out more, place a hold):


Reminds us of Looking for Alaska:

Tragedy Paper by Elizabeth Labon. Because boarding school, and story about isolation, fitting in, and tragedy.

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. Because a guy is on a search because of a girl.



Winger, by Andrew Smith. Because boarding school, friendship.


Reminds us of An Abundance of Katherines:

Why We Broke Up, by Daniel Handler. Because unexpected couple, broken heart.

Picture Me Gone, by Meg Rosoff. Because: roadtrip and great writing.


Reminds us of Paper Towns:

The Pull of Gravity by Gae Polisner. Because Nick is after an unlikely girl.

Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares, by Rachel Chohn.  Because: clues and romance.


 Reminds us of Will Grayson, Will Grayson

Freak Show by James St. James

Openly Straight, By Bill Koingsberg


Reminds us of The Fault in Our Stars

Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl, by Jesse Andrews. Title says it all.

Say What you Will, by Cammie McGovern.  Amy has cerebral palsy. Matthew is painfully OCD. In each other they find friendship and more that neither were expecting.
