JJJ Book Club: Greyson Chance is 'Looking For Alaska'

In between his packed tour schedule, Greyson Chance got a chance to sit down and send the JJJ Book Club some quotes about books.

Check out what the 14-year-old musician had to say:

What is your favorite book and why?
My favorite book would probably have to be “Looking for Alaska” by John Greene.

Why should everyone read it?
I think everybody should read this book because it is sad, happy, and heartwarming at the same time. It always makes me smile!

What’s the first book you remember reading?
I remember reading the “Junie B Jones” books when I was younger. They were my favorite girly books! Haha

Do you judge the book by its cover?
Absolutely not! Some of the best books have the worst covers.

How do you feel about all the books being made into movies?
I think some of them should be turned into movies and I think some shouldn’t. Like the Harry Potter series was definitely right to be made into movies.

    hmm its my favourite book but why is a 14 yr old reading it – it’s not exactly appropriate considering the explicitness of it

  • Elle

    His name is spelt “Green”, and he should have mentioned Johns and his brother hanks awesome youtube channel! Vlogbrothers!

  • http://dft.ba/-my_youtube Bryan

    Probably should’ve checked the spelling of his name before publishing the article…

    But I agree. It’s also my favourite.

  • Alida

    I think the appropriateness of a book for a reader is for the reader to determine, in conjuntion with his or her parents if the reader is under 18.

  • Kristi

    That’s awesome that his favourite book is LFA! and vanz, I don’t necessarily think age is always a good indicator of what reading level or content somebody should read; I started reading adult fantasy when I was twelve.

  • Christina

    @vanz: @vanz: It’s a Young Adult novel. . . targeted towards ages 14-21. It’s hardly explicit.

  • Kim

    Oh hush vanz. You do realize that the characters in the book aren’t much older than 14? And that kids that age are pretty well aware of the topics covered in the book already? It’s an awesome book, and I’d recommend it for anyone that age.

  • Dimbo

    That should be, ‘he should of mentioned John and his brother Hank’s…’

  • Emily

    @vanz — I don’t think 14 is too young–if you’re immature for a 14 year old, then yes. But I know plenty of 14 year olds, a few 13 year olds, who could handle it. It is for high schoolers, which they are.

  • pluto

    @vanz I’m pretty sure a 14yo can handle that book. Do you not remember what it was like to be fourteen?

    And yes, it’s spelled ‘Green,’ not ‘Greene.’ Two seconds on the internet, guys, and you’d know this :)

  • Hali

    This is pretty cool! I’m glad there’s another fan out there.

  • Blake

    I’m younger than him and I read it.
