Teen Thursday: Big news for John Green fans, Teen Press Corps updates and more!


Are you sitting down? Probably … Who reads blogs standing up, right? Well, get your fangirl/fanboy hat on, because there’s big news this week!


John Green has announced that Turtles All The Way Down might very well be going all the way down … to the movie theaters! That’s right, it looks like the “King of Contemporary” strikes again, selling the production rights to Fox for what will hopefully be a great adaptation of his newest bestseller.


What are your thoughts? Have you read Turtles All The Way Down yet? If not, what are you waiting for? Grab a copy today!!!!







Instructions For A Secondhand Heart – Jonny knows better than anyone that life is full of cruel ironies. He’s spent every day in a hospital hooked up to machines that keep his heart ticking. But when a donor match is found for Jonny’s heart, it turns out to be the cruelest irony of all. For Jonny’s life to finally start, someone else’s has to end. That someone turns out to be Neve’s twin brother, Leo. When Leo was alive, all Neve wanted was for him (and all his glorious, overshadowing perfection) to leave. Now that Leo’s actually gone forever, Neve has no idea how to move forward. Then Jonny walks into her life looking for answers, her brother’s heart beating in his chest, and everything starts to change. Together, Neve and Jonny will have to face the future, no matter how frightening it is, while also learning to heal their hearts, no matter how much it hurts.

Ever the Brave – After saving King Aodren with her newfound Channeler powers, Britta only wants to live a peaceful life in her childhood home. Unfortunately, saving the king has created a tether between them that she cannot sever, no matter how much she’d like to, and now he’s insisting on making her a noble lady. And there are those who want to use Britta’s power for evil designs. If Britta cannot find a way to harness her new magical ability, her life — as well as her country — may be lost. The stakes are higher than ever in the sequel to Ever the Hunted, as Britta struggles to protect her kingdom and her heart. Need a refresher on Ever the Hunted? Catch the review by Teen Press Corps member, Katie, here!

Foolish Hearts – When Claudia accidentally eavesdrops on the epic breakup of Paige and Iris, the it-couple at her school, she finds herself in hot water with prickly, difficult Iris. Thrown together against their will in the class production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, along with the goofiest, cutest boy Claudia has ever known, Iris and Claudia are in for an eye-opening senior year. Smart, funny, and thoroughly, wonderfully flawed, Claudia navigates a world of intense friendships and tentative romance in this book about expanding your horizons, allowing yourself to be vulnerable, and accepting — and loving — people for who they really are.

Rules of Rain – Rain has taken care of Ethan all of their lives. Before she even knew what autism meant, she was her twin brother’s connection to the world around him. Each day with Ethan is unvarying and predictable, and Rain takes comfort in being the one who holds their family together. It’s nice to be needed — to be the center of someone’s world. If only her longtime crush, Liam, would notice her too … Then one night, her life is upended by a mistake she can’t undo. Suddenly Rain’s new romance begins to unravel along with her carefully constructed rules. Rain isn’t used to asking for help — and certainly not from Ethan. But the brother she’s always protected is the only one who can help her. And letting go of the past may be the only way for Rain to hold onto her relationships that matter most.
