I know that in your forum you mentoned this, sorry i didn't see this until now, but this isn't cheesy at all....its Freaking PERFECT!!! i love how you capitolized Somewhere. Is it wrong that i still cry about Augustus (R.I.P)? TFIO'S is the perfectest book ever. And yeah, about the novel that (thnaks to you) I am writing: didnt even realize that Lancaster was the ame last name. Well, it obviously won't be as good as TFIO's but i will try my hardest. Also, i... (more ») Mckay replied... Apr. 29, 2013 at 1:57 pm : THANKS!! ^u^ I too finished Looking for Alaska two weeks ago. I thought it was good but not as good as TFIOS. I think it's John Green's masterpiece. Can't wait for the movie. I hope they pick out a good actor for Augustus; he's so perfect. I don't think I've ever liked a character so much like him. Shelaine Woodsley will do fine as Hazel. And I'm so glad you're proceeding to make your story into a novel. (Signed copy here; OK?) And I'm sure if you do your best... (more ») Mckay replied... Apr. 29, 2013 at 2:01 pm : P.S. It's not wrong to still cry over Augustus. The night I finished TFIOS, I sobbed for like 30 minutes; something I've never done for any book or movie. The nest day, even now, I couldn't get over it. I'm still thinking of whether to write John Green a letter to ask why he pullled a Peter Van Houten in the end. R.I.P Augustus Waters. Some infinities are just bigger than others. Laugh-it-Out replied... May 12, 2013 at 1:36 pm : Sorry to reply so late I just hate to leave people hanging) OMG THEY ARE MAKING A MOVIE!??????!! WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME :O Okay, breath. Wow. I am floored. All I can say is that it better be good. If it doesn't make me cry, It's not good. I'm a tough critique. YAY. Oh, and you know that book that Hazel and Augustus read, but it dosn't have an end? Well, me and my friend are planning on writing the end of it. yaya Keep rockin Mckay <3 Laugh-it-Out replied...

I know it's a big favor; but I'd appreciate it so much. TFIOS fans unite! Report abuse Kris_10 said... Apr. 17, 2013 at 1:26 pm: OH MY GOD!!! I read this book and it was the best book i have ever read in my entire life!! You, my friend, have a good taste in books. Okay. Now about the poem. I like how you capitalized Somewhere. its not a specific word, but everybodys somewhere is specific to them. I'm not talking heaven and afterlife. But when you die, where do you go? It's obviously a burnng question in most people's minds. And your last line sort of asks a question as to where... (more ») Mckay replied... Apr. 17, 2013 at 2:08 pm : You too have great taste in books. And thank you. I'm happy a fan of this wonderful novel though this little poem was great. I was hoping it would appeal to TFIOS fans. I hope I did it justice. I love your enthuthiasm. Thank you :)! Kris_10 replied... Apr. 17, 2013 at 10:24 pm : You're welcome. And i'm going to read his other books too. But they are ALWAYS checked out of the library. grr Mckay replied... Apr. 18, 2013 at 12:46 pm : You should: John Green is one of the best modern writers. Yesterday, I finished Looking for Alaska. It was amazing—but not as good as TFIOS, or so I think. Now, I'm gonna read Will Grayson, Will Grayson. Hope it's good. Kris_10 replied... Apr. 19, 2013 at 10:14 am : I always have so many books I want to read! Right now have like 5 on my bookshelf just waiting to be read. And I can't decide which to pick first! lol Mckay replied... Apr. 19, 2013 at 1:42 pm : I so know that feeling. I have like 10, more or less, waiting for me, screaming READ ME NOW! And all I can say is Give me minute; I'm kind of slow. maypay replied... Apr. 25, 2013 at 5:42 pm : So... I automatically have to love this because Augustus Water is perfect, but I really like how you left it short and up to the reader to determine what it means. "Somewhere" is such an abstract idea which makes your poem really cool Mckay replied... Apr. 26, 2013 at 2:12 pm : Why thank you. Yes, Augustus Water is perfect; no matter what. R.I.P. Augustus. *sigh and tears* *o* 411Ellie replied... Oct. 31, 2013 at 1:00 am : Thank you for writing this haiku!! R.I.P. Augustus Water Mckay replied...
