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 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.

    This book by John Green is a amazing book about a girl battling Cancer in her lungs. Although I did not agree with all the ideas and emotions portrayed in the book, I do have to say it was a powerful and beautiful book.

      There is a fault in Hazel Lancaster's celestial readings. Diagnosed with lung cancer since age thirteen, she goes through the motions of the day, forced to attend a cancer support group while knowing that her time may be up any second. But every one of Hazel's principles is about to be tested when she meets Augustus Waters. Attracted by his effervescently beautiful looks and personality, Hazel and Augustus' world crash and collide into something entirely their own. Every one of their firsts, their first look, first kiss, first confession of love, bond the lovers with the string of fate. But when health-related threats ending in death loom over the horizon, there will never not be a fault in their burdened stars.

        Oh my goodness, this might be my new favorite book! 16 year old Hazel has cancer. She has to go to a miserable support group every Wednesday. Life for her is depressing and boring, until she meets Augustus. He is her best friend, and they will do everything and anything for each other. Until...Well, I won't tell you that part yet. I would recommend this book to 12 or 13+ (Okay, I'm not that old yet, but still). I will leave you will my guarantee that you will love this book, and I will almost guarantee you that you will cry in chapter 21.

          I haven't finished reading this book yet but it is the best book I've ever read. I would definitely recommend this book and it is very emotional, but I seem to come back for more every time.very addictive. I would rate this book 5 stars.

            All I can say is: Wow what an amazing book!!! I could read it 1000 times and still not get sick of it. This book made me want to read another page and another page and I didn't want to stop and I was pretty much crying at the end!

                This is a great book. An absolute masterpiece on John Green's part. But jeez, Peter van Houten is no joke. it shows that cancer is a big problem and we shouldn't judge people because they're different.

The main character, Hazel Lancaster has been living with lung cancer for several years, and she has accepted that she is going to die.
