Waiting on Wednesday: This Star Won't Go Out


This Star Won't Go Out

Esther Earl with Lori Earle and Wayne Earl 

PD: 01.28.14 by Dutton Juvenile


A collection of the journals, fiction, letters, and sketches of the late Esther Grace Earl, who passed away in 2010 at the age of 16. Photographs and essays by family and friends will help to tell Esther’s story along with an introduction by award-winning author John Green who dedicated his #1 bestselling novel The Fault in Our Stars to her.

And the dedication goes too...

An author has completed the wonder process of writing a book but the most grueling decision is made when he/she decides to dedicate the source of all of his/her hard work to that special someone who helped them get through the writing process or inspired the concept in the first place. 

THIS STAR WON’T GO OUT chronicles the life of Esther Grace Earl who was diagnosed with thyroid cancer 12 and burned brightly  until her passing at 16.  An avid reader, she befriended her favorite young adult author, John Green,  while at a Harry Potter convention. Green’s cross-generational friendship with Esther motivated him to write his New York Times bestselling novel, THE FAULT IN OUR STARS.
