WHEN A FICTIONAL NOVEL BECOMES A REAL MOVIE, A FAKE BOOK FROM THE NOVEL GETS AN ACTUAL COVER.

(from usatoday.com

Filmmaking is magical!

In best-selling novel The Fault in Our Stars, protagonist Hazel Grace Lancaster (played by Shailene Woodley in the upcoming film adaptation) has a favorite book. It’s An Imperial Affliction by Peter Van Houton, and it’s a fake book by a made-up author.

The Fault movie Twitter account revealed the cover of the book in the book before the TFIOS movie is released:

Since the fake novel features the character Tulip Man, we’re assuming that’s a tulip in the window on the cover. Nice.

Book fans have been tweeting their one-sentence reviews of An Imperial Affliction for the chance to appear on the fake book’s back cover.

#AnImperialAffliction was every bit as stately, beautiful, and tragic as its title suggests.
