One book she recommends for Green's fans:
Why We Broke Up, by Daniel HandlerRead about the other books on the list.
This tenderhearted tale of high-school lust, from the author sometimes known as Lemony Snicket, is told through the objects accrued by sensitive cinephile Min Green, a high school junior, throughout her brief, doomed relationship with senior jock Ed Slaterton. The objects—including bottle caps, a Polaroid, and a movie ticket—are depicted in drawings by Maira Kalman, and somehow capture exactly the feeling of teen love, where everything your crush object touches becomes a totem. Handler’s Min is smart, ever-so-slightly pretentious, and prone to fits of melancholy—just like, ya know, every actual teen girl reading the book. Bonus: Min’s movie love is explored through multiple references to invented films that I’m dying to see, rivaling Green’s creation, in The Fault in Our Stars, of sadly nonexistent book An Imperial Affliction. Invented pop culture FTW!
