The second match of round two: Endangered v. The Fault in the Stars, judged by Martine Leavitt.
My prediction: I had predicted this match up, and my guess was “The Fault in Our Stars, because, well, John Green.”
One thing I liked about Leavitt’s opinion: she talked about both books and not just “what I loved more” but touched on flaws. Now, I don’t necessarily agree with Leavitt but that is fine, because I just liked that she didn’t think each book was perfect. Leavitt calls it being “picky” but why not be picky about books?
And the winner? “So the winner is John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars. I like my choice. I hope you do, too.”
The loss of my dear Code Name Verity is a bit easier to take, knowing I was right about The Fault in Our Stars.
