The Fault in Our Stars
Despite the tumour-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.
NOMINATING LIBRARY COMMENTS
A soulful novel that examines life, love and death with sensibility, intelligence and honesty.
A powerfully raw yet exquisite tribute to the rollercoaster ride of life, love, identity and twists of fate, as experienced by a group of teens living with “a touch of cancer”. Their humour, angst and challenges are convincing in this heartwrenching, haunting and beautifully written novel.
Brilliant, witty, sad, intense; examines the inevitability of death, and in so doing, questions the lives that lead us to it.
John Green’s young adult novel is sophisticated enough for adults and it manages to be funny, clever and touching while dealing with the very serious topic of terminal cancer.
This novel about a teenage girl, Hazel, with terminal cancer is deeply moving, ambitious and celebrates the connections between human beings.
