Hazel isn't your average 16-year-old: she
goes to community college, recites T.S. Eliot from memory, watches
marathons of America's Next Top Model. And she can't breath without the oxygen cart wheeling behind her. Augustus Waters, a one-legged 17-year-old virgin, may see a dead girl in her--or may be the one person to truly see her. This isn't a story about cancer, or cancer survivors, but about love, in all its beauty, humiliation, pain, and ecstasy.
True story: when I finished this book, I was crying so hard that my cat jumped onto my bed and started licking the tears from my face. So, you know, fair warning. But don’t be afraid. Only John Green could take the story of two teenagers battling cancer and falling in love and turn it into such a stunning, joyful and believable novel. And if you don’t believe me, ask just about anyone else on staff.— Kat
“A cancer support group might seem like an unlikely place to meet your true love, but for Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters the stars align and these two sweetly cynical souls find each other at an interesting moment in their lives. In a story brimming with mystery, humor, and lots of love, Hazel and Augustus show readers that life is made up of a million moments worth noticing -- much like a night sky filled with stars.”
