Five books for fans of "The Fault in Our Stars"

"What J.K. Rowling and Suzanne Collins started, John Green finished," writes The Barnes & Noble Book Blog's Melissa Albert: "The Fault in Our Stars made young adult readers of us all."

One book she recommends for fans of The Fault in Our Stars:
Eleanor & Park, by Rainbow Rowell

This book is perfection, spinning a heart-lifting, nail-bitingly high stakes love story between two high school misfits in 1980s Omaha. They fall for each other via comic books, Smiths songs, a stolen phone call, and the most epic hand-holding scene you’ll ever read (top that, E.L. James). It seems cheesy to talk about the life-saving power of love in the context of a book starring two high-school kids, but you’ll understand after you’ve read it. Which you absolutely must.
Read about another book on the list.
