Love Can Be Simple: What a group of teenagers taught me about writing a love story

Just a tremendous piece by the award-winner Nina LaCour, author of Hold Still, The Disenchantments, and, most recently, Everything Leads to You. So proud to be her editor.

What a spectacular way to head into Esther Day. Who knew Jeopardy had such impeccable timing.

Finally, once-in-a-decade proof that I am not crazy. Was starting to think I imagined the entire thing.  Glad I didn’t (though I wish I had a time machine).

Since there will be a hardcover of Isla and the Happily Ever After coming out in the new cover, when will the hardcovers of the other 2 books be having the new covers too? I wanted to purchase them in hardcover but it would be weird if the covers don't match up nicely :/

penguinteen:

Hi there! Sadly, the answer to your question is no—once we go into paperback, we tend not to go back. But eventually there will be an ISLA paperback with the same hardcover look that will match the current ANNA and LOLA paperbacks, so if you want you can have them all matching in paperback. We know lots of people like their covers and formats to match, but it’s not always something we can control. 

In fact, we MIGHT someday have corresponding hardcovers for ANNA and LOLA. Hard to say - it’s mostly a matter of when we might (if ever) reprint the hardcover jackets and if there’s any substantial continued demand for hardcover editions. -JSG, Dutton

Why We Read The Fault in Our Stars

I wrote about cancer, writing, and friendship for the LA Review of Books.

I loved this essay about The Fault in Our Stars and supporting a young person with an incurable cancer diagnosis. It’s the best review of the book I’ve read.

A. O. Scott wrote a brilliant and troubling review of the TFIOS movie; Hopper’s essay is a kind of response to it, and one that I found very encouraging. It helped me to think about what books ought to do, and what they can’t do.
