Looking for Alaska, the first novel by John Green, won the Michael L. Printz Award for excellence in young adult literature. His second novel, An Abundance of Katherines, was a Printz honor book. Along with his brother Hank, Green started a video blog called Brotherhood 2.0, which has grown into a vibrant internet community of nerdfighters.
