As the much-anticipated movie adaptation of John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars opens in theaters across the U.S. tonight, I came across a great article about Green in The New Yorker, The Teen Whisperer.

Do you ever wonder about stuff? I wonder about stuff. Like those life hacks that I have been inundated with online. They sound really helpful! I pin them on Pinterest, share them on Facebook, but I never actually try them. Really what I wanted was to ask around until I found someone that had tested […]
