We all dearly love and admire John Green's work. He introduced us to heartbreak, made us want to ~run away from home~, and convinced us that LOVE IS REAL! And because we know you can't get enough of John's *content*, we prepped a guide to all the existing and upcoming adaptations of the author's young adult novels:   

1. The Fault In Our Stars

Cancer patients Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort) meet at a cancer support group and soon develop feelings for each other. The two teenagers bond over books and even go on a trip to Amsterdam together, but their medical conditions get in the way of a happily ever after. This heartbreaking movie made a lot of us cry in theaters when it was first shown in 2014! 

2. Paper Towns 

John Green's novel was adapted into a film in 2015 by 20th Century Fox. It tells the story of a teenager named Quentin (Nat Wolff) and his ultimate crush and childhood friend Margo (Cara Delevigne), who suddenly goes *missing*.

However, an unexpected tragedy is bound to make Miles rethink everything. 

4. An Abundance Of Katherines 

John Green's 2006 novel about a boy named Colin who always falls for girls named Katherine has yet to be adapted into a movie or series, but it's totally a possibility! In 2007, the YA author shared that a small production company was interested in producing the film adaptation and that he had even written the screenplay. Sadly, the deal did not push through. 

5. Turtles All The Way Down 

Variety reports that a movie adaptation is certainly happening and it's going to be directed by Hannah Marks (she's only 25 years old)! John Green's latest novel is about a teenage girl with OCD who embarks on a search for a missing billionaire because of a $100,000 (P5.17 million) reward.
