Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green's most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.



Review Quotes



CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR THE FAULT IN OUR STARS

"Damn near genius . . . The Fault in Our Stars is a love story, one of the most genuine and moving ones in recent American fiction, but it's also an existential tragedy of tremendous intelligence and courage and sadness." --Lev Grossman, TIME Magazine

"This is a book that breaks your heart--not by wearing it down, but by making it bigger until it bursts."
--The Atlantic

"A story about two incandescent kids who will live a long time in the minds of the readers who come to know them."
--People

"Remarkable . . . A pitch-perfect, elegiac comedy."
--USA Today

"A smarter, edgier Love Story for the Net Generation."
--Family Circle

"Because we all need to feel first love again. . . . Sixteen-year-old Hazel faces terminal cancer with humor and pluck. But it isn't until she meets Augustus in a support group that she understands how to love or live fully."
--Oprah.com, a Best Book selection and one of "5 Books Every Woman Needs to Read Before Her Next Birthday"

"[Green's] voice is so compulsively readable that it defies categorization. You will be thankful for the little infinity you spend inside this book."
--NPR.org

"Hilarious and heartbreaking . . . reminds you that sometimes when life feels like it's ending, it's actually just beginning."
--Parenting magazine

"John Green deftly mixes the profound and the quotidian in this tough, touching valentine to the human spirit."
--The Washington Post

"[Green] shows us true love--two teenagers helping and accepting each other through the most humiliating physical and emotional ordeals--and it is far more romantic than any sunset on the beach."
--New York Times Book Review

"In its every aspect, this novel is a triumph."
--Booklist, starred review


"You know, even as you begin the tale of their young romance, that the end will be 100 kinds of awful, not so much a vale as a brutal canyon of tears. . . . Green's story of lovers who aren't so much star-crossed as star-cursed leans on literature's most durable assets: finely wrought language, beautifully drawn characters and a distinctive voice."
--Frank Bruni, The New York Times

"A novel of life and death and the people caught in between, The Fault in Our Stars is John Green at his best. You laugh, you cry, and then you come back for more."
--Markus Zusak, bestselling and Printz Honor-winning author of The Book Thief

"The Fault in Our Stars takes a spin on universal themes--Will I be loved? Will I be remembered? Will I leave a mark on this world?--by dramatically raising the stakes for the characters who are asking."
--Jodi Picoult, bestselling author of My Sister's Keeper and Sing You Home

"John Green is one of the best writers alive."
--E. Lockhart, National Book Award Finalist and Printz Honor-winning author of The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks and We Were Liars

This book will make you feel so many emotions. It has humor, shock, romance, tragedy, and hope. The theme of children with cancer is always a tough one to tackle but I feel that John Green addresses it well. This store grabs you from the first page and doesn't let go, even after you close the back cover. Be warned: you will need tissues. I bought a whole box in anticipation of reading this book (I didn't go through the whole box but there was a small mountain of them by the time I was done). I would recommend this to anyone aged 13 onwards.

Oh goodness. Where to start. This book was certainly not what I expected when I started it, but I was not disappointed. It really got into my head, and made me think a lot in general. The book had me sobbing uncontrollably by the end, and long after I was finished the tears continued. A great read.
