John Green’s car goes up in flames during race with ‘Raven Boys’ author Maggie Stiefvater
Who knew that young-adult author rivalries could go so hard?
Young-adult author rivalries are serious business. This weekend, a car race between John Green and Raven Boys author Maggie Stiefvater saw Green’s car go up in flames.
The charity race took place in Princeton, Minnesota, and while car enthusiast Stiefvater thoroughly defeated Green, the latter writer gained some points for getting back into his car after it caught fire on the track.
Stiefvater was so fast that, after she finished crushing John Green’s racing dreams, she was asked to race the track’s team of professional drivers as well. She crushed them too.
“Yeah we want you to race the others,” they said.
“Wait, why?” I asked.
“‘Cause you’re fast.”

The whole thing was documented on YouTube, including the moment when Green’s car caught fire. Next time a bestselling author tries to reassure people that their life is boring and unglamorous, we will totally refuse to believe a word of it.
