The Fault in Our Stars follows the story of Hazel Grace Lancaster, a sixteen-year-old girl with terminal cancer. Life-saving, tumour-shrinking, medical treatment has only been able to buy Hazel a few years. In a Cancer Kid Support Group, which her parents forced her to, Hazel meets Augustus Waters, a gorgeous seventeen-year-old ex-basketball player and amputee. Suddenly, Hazel’s life is turned upside down.

"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, author of The Book Thief.
"An electric portrait of young people who learn to live life with one foot in the grave. Filled with staccato bursts of humor and tragedy, 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.
