This Friday, The Fault in Our Stars hit movie screens across America. It was a big book (Time Magazine’s #1 fiction book of 2012), and looks to be an even bigger movie.
The story has been on Redeemedreader’s radar for quite sometime. Janie did a fantastic review a while back, which you can read HERE. I was also able to review the movie for World Magazine, as well as produce a radio piece. Here is a link to the free radio version: http://worldrad.io/1nRWkPz.

Coffee and Conversations
Because this book is aimed at teens, I feel that perhaps the strongest witness may come from teens themselves. And for that reason, we’ve developed this series called Coffee and Conversations. Below, I’ve enlisted two intrepid young college students to discuss the movie with me:
- Hayley, of course, is our Older Readers Assistant Editor, and when she’s not reading books for us, she’s a student at Boyce College. Hayley is the oldest in a large homeschool family, and she blogs at her own website, Catsinboxes.wordpress.com.
- Amos is our current Redeemedreader.com intern. He just finished his first year at Boyce College, and while he’s eager to try his hand at writing, he also hopes to go into ministry after graduation.

Take a Listen!
So, with those introductions out of the way, we hope you’ll pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee or tea, and listen to some of our thoughts on this book-to-movie phenomenon. And of course, let us know what you think in the comments!
