We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community.

This book was amazing. I loved the pictures and all the journals. Must-read if you read The Fault In Our Stars.

Um, in response to leslietrejoxo, Esther Earl isn't Hazel from tfios. Esther inspired the book and creation of Hazel, but John Green himself has said that she isn't the real-life version of Hazel.

I absolutely loved this book! While I was reading it, I thought about how amazing a girl Esther was and how much I'd love to meet her, but then I remembered that she died in 2010, and this made me really sad. I cried through almost the whole book. I would reccomend this book for anyone who isn't too affected by sad stories, as I dwelled on it a lot after I read it and sometimes cried thinking about Esther after the book was over. I love you Esther! I'll miss you!

This is the journals and personal letters of the young girl who inspired John Green to write his popular book "The Fault In Our Stars"
