You’ve probably heard of John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars, Paper Towns, and several other young-adult novels, but have you heard of his younger brother Hank Green? (Yes, probably, the Greens are famous for the YouTube channel they run together.) Anyway, Hank’s trying out the whole novel thing with a new book he’s writing that will be out in the fall of 2018 called An Absolutely Remarkable Thing, which is, of course, about someone who gets famous on the internet. The character in question is April May, an art student who discovers a mysterious robot sculpture in New York, right before mysterious robot sculptures start appearing all over the world. “Every character in the book is a different version of me,” Green told the New York Times, presumably not referring to any of the robot sculptures.
