Last week we opened up the floor to our Teen community to share their favorite quotes and takeaway thoughts from The Fault in Our Stars. The chat was fantastic and we definitely have a clear idea of what parts of the book made the deepest impression on young readers.

This week, we're taking the talk back home where we'll have a roundtable of editors discussing the biggest issues you asked us during all of our chats and commenting sessions.
Join us by leaving your thoughts on the following topics on our discussion page:
- Do adults and teens read this book differently?
- What does each group get out of it?
- Does this say anything about the direction YA is moving in?
- Was this your first brush with John Green and would you read him again?
See you at 4pm ET!
