I love John Green and so does my son Marc! You can be sure that we both will be reading this one! Here's what little I could find out about the book on Wiki.
The Fault in Our Stars is the upcoming fourth solo novel by author John Green that rose to #1 on the Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble bestseller lists in June 2011 shortly after its title was announced.
The book's title was revealed in a post on Green's Tumblr blog on June 28, 2011. In the post, Green stated, "The title is inspired by a famous line from Shakespeare's play, Julius Caesar. The nobleman Cassius says to Brutus, 'The fault, dear Brutus is not in our stars, / But in ourselves, that we are underlings.'" This was also stated on his YouTube vlog.
The book shot to number 1 on the Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble bestseller lists, even though an official release date and cover had not yet been released. Green also promised that every copy of the first printing will be hand-signed by him. He proposed that the general public vote on the colorSharpie he will use to sign the book. The voting resulted in him signing the books with a variety of Sharpie colors, each in proportion to the amount of votes received for that color. He has also been allowing fans to submit their book cover designs.
