The Greens’ reign just won’t let up. John Green is continuing his dominance as a young adult author: He’s following up the devastation he caused millions of Looking For Alaska, Paper Towns, and The Fault In Our Stars readers with his upcoming book, Turtles All The Way Down. His brother, Hank, is no slouch, either. Hank is one of the most influential educators on YouTube, teaching millions of rabid subscribers—part of the pair’s collective Vlogbrothers channel—about everything from how to invest money to global warming. Now, the brothers are hitting the road, with John taking Hank on tour as his special guest. The two will answer burning audience questions (like, why does John insist on killing characters everyone loves?), perform live music, and chat about the new book, which traces the journey of 16-year-old Aza as she navigates life. Following a megahit like The Fault In Our Stars after a five-year hiatus is not easy, but if it’s anything like John’s particular brand of soul-crushing, readers will need tissues on hand.
