John Green Shares Sweet Tribute To Esther Earl, The Inspiration Behind 'The Fault in Our Stars'

Today is a very special day to John Green – it’s Esther Earl‘s birthday.

If you remember, Esther was the inspiration behind The Fault in Our Stars, one of John‘s amazing novels, that was turned into a movie with Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort.

“Happy Esther Day,” John greeted Twitter this morning (August 3). “Before she died in 2010, Esther Earl asked us to remember her birthday with a celebration of love among family and friends. And so every August 3rd, people around the world take a moment to say ‘I love you’ to those they care about.”

He added, “Esther would be–should be–24 years old today, navigating the treacherous waters of early adulthood.”

“I miss her, as so many people do. But I also see her work and love continuing through her family and @tswgo. I’m grateful to them, and to everyone who shares love on Esther Day.”

Happy Esther Day to all!

John Green's 'Looking For Alaska' Being Developed as TV Series for Hulu

Looking for Alaska might actually see the light of day!

After hearing many rumors about a big screen adaptation, like John Green‘s other novels “The Fault in Our Stars” and “Paper Towns”, “Looking for Alaska” has been optioned for an eight-part miniseries on Hulu!

Deadline reports that the project Josh Schwartz, has written the pilot, and will serve as executive producer and showrunner. John will be an executive producer on the project.

“Looking for Alaska” centers on Miles “Pudge” Halter who is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave “the Great Perhaps” even more.

He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young.

She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . After. Nothing is ever the same.
