The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
That picture above is my actual copy, along with the ticket from the Tour de Nerdfighting event I attended in Bethesda, MD just days after this was released. The event is why this book is my favorite book I own. I'm fairly new to Nerdfighteria, and this book is part of the reason I joined that world. I kept hearing all this buzz about it, and I'd heard John Green's name bandied about so many times in my YA community, so I decided to see what the fuss was about. I read his debut novel Looking for Alaska, and it blew me away. Then I started in on the vlogbrothers videos, and that, as they say, is history.
So why is this the favorite book I own? First, the sticker of the front! It's a signed copy. If you go back through some older vlogbrothers videos, you'll see that John signed every copy of the first printing of TFiOS, and I got one of those J-Scribbles!
But I still went to the signing. And this happened:
Sasha got me actually mid-conversation with them!! (FYI, if you want to have an awesome line-waiting experience, you need peeps like Sarah Enni and Sash by your side!)
Hank, I'll see you on Friday.
