John Green: Star Author, Vlgobrother and Nerdfighter by Eric Braun.

JohnGreenPopular writer of contemporary young adult fiction, this biography provides insights into how John Green developed from a shy and nerdy high school geek into a major social media personality and widely acclaimed and celebrated author. This is an engaging personal story that explores the challenges, pitfalls, highlights and successes of someone who does not ‘fit’ into an average mould and how he learns to celebrate and embrace his differences.

A perfect accompaniment for a study of his hugely popular fiction – The Fault in the Stars, Will Grayson Will Grayson and Paper Towns to name a few – this an engaging biographical study that fans of Green will enjoy immensely. Much of what is detailed in the book can also be tracked through the author’s strong media presence, starting with the John Green blog, laced with numerous video clips, and also a gateway to Vlogbrothers and Nerdfighteria.
