This Star Won't Go Out: The Life and Words of Esther Grace Earl (MP3 CD)
— Judy Bulow has decades of experience as our lead buyer for children's books at Tattered Cover
Green talks about Esther Earl a lot, and he dedicated his book The
Fault in our Stars to Esther, as she was an important muse for him.
Esther Grace Earl died at 16, a victim of cancer. But she lived a most amazing, positive
teen life, and wrote about her illness online, and her words were read
by many teens, both well and sick. She was creative, funny, and frank—and wise beyond her years.
This book is not depressing; it is about an awesome girl who loved and honored every minute of her life. She will not be forgotten. ~Judy, our No.1 expert on books for children of all ages
