"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Enter to Win a Special Something from NCTE!

As most of you know, I've been in Chicago for the last 6 days at the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Conference.  While there I got so many awesome books, and met so many awesome authors, that I felt a little guilty that all of you weren't there with me.

To rectify my guilt, I have something VERY exciting to give away!

Yes, you read that right!  I have 3 copies of a chapter sampler containing the first 2 chapters of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, and I'm giving them away to you!

Summary of The Fault in Our Stars
Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 12, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumors in her lungs... for now.  
Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumors tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.  
Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.

To enter just fill out the Rafflecopter below!  Easy Peasy!
