Having just read This Star Won't Go Out, and having the wristband on permanently I just wanted to say that Esther Earl was a remarkable and inspirational person, with an amazing story. I know I never met her and that I never knew her, and that so many people have stated that Esther changed the world just like she always wanted, but I just wanted to say it again, she made a difference. She never forgot to be awesome, and the world is a better place thanks to her contribution.

Hi, I'm from Brazil and I am reading the book of Esther. Well .. What about someone you have never met and know you will not have the pleasure of knowing but who nonetheless inspires you so much? You know when you think you have anything to say in your head and can not put into words? Yeah ... I'm going through it now. I know that wherever she is Esther hear me now. Dear Esther Grace, I just wanted you to know I love to have known him, I admire the way you looked at life and appreciate even more the strength of his having fought until the last second. Glad you've gone in peace and know that is where God has prepared a special place for you. When night falls and the stars appear showing all its splendor will look at the sky and look for you and imagine that you are with the greatest brilliance. Every time I open your book and read about the way you handled the same as cancer or having gone through difficult situations their faith was never shaken feel a bit useless for being angry even the smallest things in my day-to-day or often not value the beautiful things in life like family and friends. Believe me, because of his book, for your sake, I'm reflecting more, acting more by thanking you, living longer. I wish you had read The Fault In Our Stars (JONH GREEN DID A WONDERFUL JOB) and seen the last Harry Potter movies. I think you would have liked them. They are amazing. Unfortunately, there is no knowledge but I believe you just the kind of person that God sends to earth to teach us lessons of love, perseverance and above all, faith.

I honestly don't know what to say, I started reading This Star Won't Go Out and in a matter of milliseconds you inspired me. You're a fantastically brave girl and I wish I knew you, we would have fangirled to an oblivion about Harry Potter. 
I hope you're partying hard up there with God.
You're such an inspiration, thank you so much <3

Hello, I am Brazilian and I am reading the book of Esther, I'm not very good with words, but I needed to write something here, haha, the book of Esther is so perfect and encouraging to read it made ​​me think more about my life and as there are people in far worse situations than mine and still have a good life, I really wanted Esther saw this comment, but I know it will be impossible (or not), I wish I could have known, you inspire me Esther, your story is an inspiration!

I don't really know what to say, but I need to say something. I don't even know if this is the right place to say it. Anyway. I should get on with it.
I started reading This Star Won't Go Out the other day. Needless to say, it's changed a lot of things involved with me. It really is a great book and I am so unbelievably glad that Esther's memory could be shared in this way. Obviously, whilst reading, I've become quiet sad. 
In reading her journal entrees, I can't help but wish I had known her. I still want to know her. I just want to shake her and or give her a high five. Sometimes I feel like maybe I was too late, but I still can know her in some ways and that is good enough for me. 
I don't normally pray. My relationship with God has gone off the rails in these past few months, but I am praying that this family remains as awesome as it is forever. I am praying that Esther is having the time of her life upstairs. I am praying that both Esther and her family are as good as they deserve to be all the time. 

I know this little note is going to be lost in the sea of other little (or not so little) notes, but that makes me happy. That many people care enough to say something. That many people have been affected by Esther and her blindingly brilliant star. 

Sometimes I resent being on this planet. The negative seems overwhelming. It's people like you guys who convince me otherwise. God bless you all. 

Esther, Godspeed.

I'm a brazilian girl and I admire you an your fight against the cancer. What else to say? Ahn...yeah, You're a pretty girl, really, you're a very very very pretty  haha Okay, I adore you girl. Thanks for everything <3

Well, okay. I'm from Brazil, and read the book of Esther. I never got to know her story in this period, but I am Brazilian, and was kind of hard, but okay. I was at a wedding, while everyone laughed and danced celebrating, I was reading the book. So, I liked it, in fact I loved. Had her words, reports of her diaries, and I know there was her life. Do not even know if anyone will come to read this, and I do not know if they will understand, because I'm having to use a program that translates from Portuguese into English (which by the way is crap), but I'm still here writing. Esther never will read, much less think it will serve for something, but I just wish she was here just to see how much she currently inspires many lives. Goodbye.

I just finished reading your beautiful book, that my daughter decided to share with me.  She purchased it while she was in boot camp (USAF), and said it helped her to get through many rough times.  What an inspiration you are, and how years later, you continue to touch lives; our lives.  I am looking at your precious face that covers the front of your book entitled "this star won't go out", and your smile touches my soul.  I know you are continuing to make lives happy in heaven, and I look forward to one day meeting you.  You are correct... your star will never go out.

the meaning of life. what is the true meaning of life? I think the real question is how do you measure your life. in hugs and kisses? in laughter and smile? or love? Esther's life was full of a never ending love that is and always will be infinite. If Esther was to measure her life in love today, maybe it could cure her illness. maybe love is all you need in life. and if so, I believe this beautiful star should still be wit us.

I began reading "This Star Won't Go Out" this past day. I have reached page 96 and I know I am not far into the book, but I have a few words of encouragement I wish to share. First, to Esther herself. You have graced all types of people through your words. You inspired one of the best stories ever read, and it's a shame you'll never get to read it. I think that's what gets to me most. You're the one who caused John Green to write the story that has changed peoples' lives all across the globe. In fact we all love the story so much, they've made a movie. I do wish I could have met you personally, but TSWGO is always close by my side. Keep writing up there in heaven. Stay awesome. Xx To the family and friends of Esther Grace Earl. You are the greatest people in the entire world. Not only did you devote your lives to making that girl happy, but when she finally passed away peacefully you didn't stop. You all continued to do what she mist wanted- make people happy. Publishing and writing "This Star Won't Go Out" has to be one of the most amazing things in history. You are all the most caring people I can think of and Esther loved you all dearly. You're story of the life and words of Esther Grace Earl has inspired Nerdfighters all over. To John Green. I know you fall into the friend category, but this letter is personal. You'll probably never read this, but just know that you made a good friend out of Esther and I am definitely jealous. Finally, I know I didn't know Esther personally, but I truly wish I had. She is the most pleasant girl to ever walked the earth. She was, she is, practically perfectly in every way. And I'm not famous, and I'm not an author, and I'll never get published, but I feel connected to Esther. we have so much in common. And I would like to dedicate every book and story I'll ever write, not only to Esther, but to her family, her friends, and all people who have inspired my writing despite the fact that we do not know each other.

Im on the 74th page of This Star Won't Go Out, and though I am not far in the book, I do know that heaven had a plan for you. And that you are partying up there with The Lord and reading The Fault In Our Stars, Harry Potter 1-7, and other amazing books. After I'm done reading, I will write you a note again.

Dear Esther,
I am here because I am currently reading your book and I have been a nerdfighter since 2 years now and I always wanted to do this but reading your book has given me a lot of insight about not only my life but also the suffering of others.

But I don't want this message to be about suffering and The Lessons Learnt. Moreover, I want to tell you how much I love you, because you know what? We're really alike, I mean we have almost all the same interests and that just makes me feel a lot more connected to you.

Hope you're dancing to Regina Spektor songs up there in heaven.

Dear Esther,
I am here because I am currently reading your book and I have been a nerdfighter since 2 years now and I always wanted to do this but reading your book has given me a lot of insight about not only my life but also the suffering of others.

But I don't want this message to be about suffering and The Lessons Learnt. Moreover, I want to tell you how much I love you, because you know what? We're really alike, I mean we have almost all the same interests and that just makes me feel a lot more connected to you.

Hope you're dancing to Regina Spektor songs up there in heaven.
DFTBA

Hi, I'm from Brazil and I am reading the book of Esther. Well .. What about someone you have never met and know you will not have the pleasure of knowing but who nonetheless inspires you so much? You know when you think you have anything to say in your head and can not put into words? Yeah ... I'm going through it now. I know that wherever she is Esther hear me now. Dear Esther Grace, I just wanted you to know I love to have known him, I admire the way you looked at life and appreciate even more the strength of his having fought until the last second. Glad you've gone in peace and know that is where God has prepared a special place for you. When night falls and the stars appear showing all its splendor will look at the sky and look for you and imagine that you are with the greatest brilliance. Every time I open your book and read about the way you handled the same as cancer or having gone through difficult situations their faith was never shaken feel a bit useless for being angry even the smallest things in my day-to-day or often not value the beautiful things in life like family and friends. Believe me, because of his book, for your sake, I'm reflecting more, acting more by thanking you, living longer. I wish you had read The Fault In Our Stars (JONH GREEN DID A WONDERFUL JOB) and seen the last Harry Potter movies. I think you would have liked them. They are amazing. Unfortunately, there is no knowledge but I believe you just the kind of person that God sends to earth to teach us lessons of love, perseverance and above all, faith.

I honestly don't know what to say, I started reading This Star Won't Go Out and in a matter of milliseconds you inspired me. You're a fantastically brave girl and I wish I knew you, we would have fangirled to an oblivion about Harry Potter. 
I hope you're partying hard up there with God.
You're such an inspiration, thank you so much <3

Oh Esther,you really inspire me. You're a cute and sweet girl, you're an angel, you're a star. You have a greatest heart. You're a big fan of Harry Potter, right? Ahn...they made a great job in the latest movies, and  "The Fault In Our Stars" is a PERFECT book, John Green made a wonderful job, is my favorite book <3 I'm reading your story, and OMG you're princess and warrior <3

the meaning of life. what is the true meaning of life? I think the real question is how do you measure your life. in hugs and kisses? in laughter and smile? or love? Esther's life was full of a never ending love that is and always will be infinite. If Esther was to measure her life in love today, maybe it could cure her illness. maybe love is all you need in life. and if so, I believe this beautiful star should still be wit us.

Im on the 74th page of This Star Won't Go Out, and though I am not far in the book, I do know that heaven had a plan for you. And that you are partying up there with The Lord and reading The Fault In Our Stars, Harry Potter 1-7, and other amazing books. After I'm done reading, I will write you a note again.
