Shailene Woodley’s’ Fault in Our Stars,’ Covering EW, Is the New Model for YA Bestseller To Movie

Shailene Woodley's' Fault in Our Stars,' Covering EW, Is the New Model for YA Bestseller To Movie

“The Fault in Our Stars” (June 6) could very well be the new model for a YA bestseller turned movie. 

Target demo movie star Shailene Woodley–who has
really skyrocketed from “The Descendants,” “The Spectacular Now” to “Divergent”–headlines the film about cancer-battling teens crazy in love,
while after four novels author John Green is an online social media superstar. 

I discovered more
about him at the recent LA Times Festival of Books, where he won an LA Times Book Award and rocked his Q&A. Check out his website.
He’s a new media master. That’s part of what leads a studio like Fox 2000 to produce and release the movie and an eyeball-seeking magazine like EW to tap into its “Twilight/Hunger Games” demo for a cover story.
