I read this book several months ago and- like everything I’ve read by John Green, I loved it. LOVED. I of course bawled my eyes out and all that jazz. But let me take a minute to explain what I liked about it… I liked, that once again, John Green is making smart kids cool. That the sexual experiences in the book are well thought out and purposeful and not at all gratuitous. I like the flow of the dialogue. And, I really liked, that it got students reading.
I have yet to see the movie but I will soon. Anyways, I give this book a big thumbs up and think it’s definitely a book both tens and adults can enjoy and learn from.
I think this book is most appropriate for high school students. I do think it could be used as a whole class read but I would probably just keep it on my bookshelf and recommend it to students.
