This is my choice for best book of the year for many reasons; it’s beautifully written, has amazing dialog and a great cast of characters. But mostly it’s because I love a good love story. This is an epic love story. It follows a terminal cancer patient named Hazel who’s 16 and depressed. She is sent to group therapy where she meets Augustus; a fellow cancer survivor. John Green’s ability to channel teenage girls and teen interaction is exceptional. To make cancer funny is no easy feat; yet he does it easily. Follow Hazel and Gus as they fall in love and live life to its fullest. This is a book that will have you laughing and crying at the same time. A guaranteed ‘must read’.— Rosa, New Jersey
The Fault in Our Stars completely captivated me. I was crying and then laughing and then crying again. I was attached to the characters and I still am, months after reading the book. John Green shows the reader sadness, love, hate, fright and confusion all in one paragraph through humor and the deep connection with the characters that I still feel months after reading the book. The Fault in Our Stars is absolutely my favorite book. It is not just some cheesy romance with a perfect fairy tale ending but it's different and it is a reminder that life is not a perfect fairy tale. I hope never to be in the characters' situation, but watching them go through such tragedy was in its own way magical.— Stella, Atlanta
“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.”

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" brilliantly explores the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.
