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.

Review:

“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 its also an existential tragedy of tremendous intelligence and courage and sadness.” Lev Grossman, TIME Magazine

Review:

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

Review:

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

Review:

“Remarkable....A pitch-perfect, elegiac comedy.” USA Today

Review:

“[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

Review:

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

Review:

“[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

Review:

“In its every aspect, this novel is a triumph.” Booklist, starred review

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
