John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars has been a phenomenon for a long time. But when Time magazine called it the #1 Fiction Book of 2012, people outside of Green’s incredibly-loyal fan base sat up and took notice. This is a teen book, after all, and it certainly says something important about this book specifically, and the importance of teen books in general, that it could beat out so many other wonderful books to take the top spot.
Today’s the one year anniversary of The Fault in Our Stars—a remarkable book about two young cancer patients in love—and readers’ enthusiasm for it continues to grow. I could go on and on about how everyone—teens, adults, literate canines—needs to read this book. Instead, I’ve put together some recent fan tweets that encapsulate just how beloved this book is:

“I did it. I read
#TFIOS before the end of #2012. Needless to say, tears ensued. Wonderful, wonderful book.”

Don’t take Time magazine, the Twittersphere, or my word for it—help celebrate this modern classic's 1st Birthday by downloading it today.
