His novels Looking for Alaska and Paper towns are mostly deconstruction of the "Manic Pixie Dream Girl" tropes. An abundance of Katherines was very insightful about what it's like to be a teenage prodigy who has weird conceptions of life.vid87 said:Snip
Basically, when you're reading a John Green novel, you expect deconstructions of tropes, deadpan snarking and a different look at teenagers.
I recommend the Fault in our Stars for a read. If you want to read a "young adult" novel that doesn't feel like the stereotypical teenage fantasy, John Green is your guy.
Oh god, three posts defending the movie, the book and the author?.I'm a fan?. Oh god! Don't panic! It's not like I'm one of those typical Sherlock fans?WAIT! I AM! OH GOD! OH GOD! OH GOD!
