Critical Linking: November 29, 2015

High school seniors across the country are reading a lot of John Green.

In a new report compiled by Learnalytics, an insights and research company that studies students, researchers found that The Fault in Our Stars, Green’s young adult novel about a teenage girl living with cancer, was the most-read book among high school seniors in 16 states during the 2014-15 school year. This includes states like Texas, Arizona and Minnesota.

I’m not surprised by John Green being so widely read….nor am I surprised there are so few books by women or people of color on this list.
