Most authors of best-selling YA novels don’t have quite the rock star quality of The Fault In Our Stars author John Green, who seems to have a following not just because of his awesome books, but also outside of them. He has a whole legion of fans who call themselves Nerdfighters who have their own hand signs. They’ll also tell you to give some props to John Green’s brother Hank Green. What’s going on with John Green is more than just an awesome tearjerker of a YA novel and movie, it’s a movement.
