I'm going to be honest by saying my expectations for this book was sky-high, for the usual reasons. It's John Green's brother, the hype surrounding this was pretty big, and it says THE INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER on the back.

The hype leading up to this made me so nervous. What if my expectations were too high? What if I expected too much from this book and I end up disappointed? Well, friends, I most definitely was not disappointed.
