It all depends on the reader's preference, because the genres that the authors write in are both quite different. In my opinion, John Green is the better author. I prefer his writing style, his humor, the world he creates. I believe that his writing would appeal to high schoolers more than the work of Patterson's work would.
John Green's book "The Fault in Our Stars" is an incredible novel. It made me laugh, cry, giggle and sob. He drew me in and made me feel what the characters would. It is also becoming a movie, so you can read the book before hand and perhaps compare it to what the director would've done?
I hope I helped :) . Enjoy your book club!
