John Green's Charity Car Race Got A Little Heated — Literally

Maybe this experience will inspire his next book?

This post has been updated since Oct. 10, 2015.

Everyone's favorite YA author, vlogger and activist, John Green, participated in a charity car race, raising money for Driver's Edge. The race went perfectly, except when the car Green was in caught on fire.

Yes, you read that correctly. "The Fault in Our Stars" author was in a fiery automobile. But don't worry — he's perfectly fine! He raced fellow author Maggie Stiefvater in Princeton, MN. Stiefvater is the author of "The Raven Cycle" series. If you're all about that Periscope life, you can watch his pre-race video here.

Green's car caught on fire during the first race, but because he's a BAMF, he went and raced again. Seriously, John Green. That takes a TON of guts.

We're so glad you're all right, John!
