Esther-
You are amazing. Present tense. I never got to meet you, but I know already how great of a person you are. Like many others, the Vlogbrothers led me to you. (I celebrated Esther Day last summer for the first time and it felt good. You have great ideas.) At first, I didn't know too much about you, but then I found out your beautiful words were published and I thought "Oh! I need to read that!" but like the forgetful teen I am, it slipped my mind (oops). But, as I was doing homework in my school's library, I just happened to look up and spot a bright lime green book spine among other dark colored ones. I was interested, so I went and read the title and found out that it was in fact your book (congrats on becoming an author!) and I got all excited inside because I remembered that I'd been meaning to read it but never got around to it until then. So of course I checked it out and started reading it. I read and I read and I read and I read and a couple days later, I had read all the words on the 430-ish page book on yours. I felt refreshed. Renewed. You are such an inspiration and I am amazed at how you were able to change the world and so many people in your time here on Earth. I imagine you looking down from heaven, enjoying the same things we do and listening to the new music that's coming out and just loving everything good. I'm rambling. Whoops. Anyway, you are great and loved and missed and inspiring and hilarious and I am just so pumped that you were able to get your words published. Here I am celebrating Esther Day four months and two days early: I love you, Esther. I will always turn to your uplifting words and story and videos and personality in times of need. May peace be with you. <3

Hi Esther! I'm watching Brotherhood 2.0 / vlogbrothers from the beginning. I've heard of you before and celebrated Esther Day this past summer, but I just discovered this guest book. I just want you to know that your legacy of love and positivity has endured thus far and will continue to endure as long as nerdfighteria continues to flourish (which I think we can mutually hope will be a very very very long time). My thoughts, love, and prayers go to you and all of those whom you love. I hope you're resting peacefully. DFTBA.

Hello Esther, I was just watching one of John Green's old videos and I have heard of you multiple times and have been empowered by your story, and it sent me here. I am not exactly sure what to say I just want you to know that you are so incredibly loved. I wish you got more days than you got but in the time you were here you were a star in so many peoples lives. I also want you to know you aren't known as the girl with cancer, you are known as the girl who loves Harry Potter and was kind and funny and was so strong with or without the cancer. I am not sure what is provoking me to get so emotional over this just I would like to let you know you left a mark in my life.

Esther,
I am currently reading your story and am about halfway through. The only time I was able to put it down was now to stop and write this. I wish you could know how much of an inspiration you are to me and so many others. Your faith is the thing that truly inspired me. My friend Ian died of lung cancer in 2009. He was like a big brother to me, though I'm not sure if he knew it. He had so much strength and faith to face the sickness. I always had accredited it to his age; he was 23 when he died. I always thought that when I became his age, I'd automatically have the same faith as him. You would be almost exactly one year older than me, Esther. To see your faith, being the same age I was, and how brave you were in the face of this terrible disease really hit me hard. Even at 19, if I were faced with a life threatening illness, I'm not sure if I'd have the strength to praise God and fully trust Him. I would certainly hope I had that faith, but you never know until you are in that situation. I wish you could read this, and who knows, maybe you can hear all the messages we're sending your way. Lori, and Wayne, if you are reading this, I'd just like to thank you for putting together Esther's writings and publishing "This Star Won't Go Out." I'd also like to thank you for raising such a wonderful young girl who has now reached so many hearts.

Esther wanted to change the world and although I don't know her, I can tell that she has done so. After reading Fault in Our Stars, followed by This Star Won't Go Out, I had to find out more about this Esther Earl. She has definitely made an impact on my life, and I know I'm not the only one. She sounded like an amazing character and after reading her tweets, blog posts, and watching her youtube videos, I have begun to understand how special she made people feel without even knowing it. She seemed like such an amazing person, and I would have loved to meet her. Maybe one day we'll catch up in heaven, I'm sure there's a long line to meet her though! Rest in Awesome Esther Earl!!

I wish I could tell you personally, Esther, how much of an inspiration you are to me. This Star Won't Go Out touches my heart, and I'm only on page 75. I feel I can relate to you even though a. I don't have a life threatening disease and b. I do not share the same religious views. You inspired me to start keeping a journal again and to keep a positive attitude when things get bad and you don't think you can keep going. And you didn't do this through direct words, but you made me feel important. You are one of millions with the life sucking disease called cancer, but you and your story are just as important as those other victims. No one is worth less than another and your story holds true to that. You are an amazing person and may you rest in peace.

Esther,
From reading your book, I can tell that you were a wonderful person who believed in our heavenly Lord even when times got hard. The world is less beautiful because of your death. Thank you for inspiring me through your story and your faith. I am moved by how potent your positivity was even through your trials. You have shown me how to live fully even through your trials. Thank you for ridding me of Depression. I love you even though I never met you. Thank you for your strength.

Wayne, Lori, Abraham, Abby, Angie, Graham, someone.  I need to know someone is reading this.  My name is Ashley and I'm 12.  I didn't know Esther.  But here's what I have to say: Esther was and still remains my idol.  Her story, her cancer, her fight is awful but amazing at the same time.  The cancer was awful.  Her fight was amazing.  After reading The Fault In Our Stars, I, naturally, became obsessed.  So, I looked at the dedication.  And it was to Esther.  I did some research, and that's when Esther became my idol.  Now, I know whoever is reading this is thinking, "So you're comparing our Star to Hazel, aren't you?"  No.  I would never.  Esther's story is an extremely unique one.  Horrible, but unique.  Esther fought so hard and I admire her for it.  I recently started watching her YouTube videos, and...she just looks so happy in all of them.  That must be very hard when you're suffering.  Before you accuse me, ESTHER IS NOT PERFECT.  I had to say that because it's what she would find to be the truth.  If I feel like I'm suffering from her death, I remember her family, her friends (Lindsay, Arka, etc...) and her cats.  I really don't know why I decided to write this, honestly, but I'm glad I did.  Thank you for reading.
