Synopsis

Hazel Grace Lancaster is a sixteen year old girl with terminal cancer, forced to attend a Cancer Kid Support Group by her mother. Here she meets the charismatic Augustus Waters, and her life takes a turn for the better. He falls in love, quickly.The two central characters, Augustus and Hazel are real, funny and have personality and voices that leap off the page. One minute you will be laughing, and the next completely sobbing. We couldn’t put down this raw, epic and completely overwhelming young adult novel, and  can’t remember the last time we read a novel that that moved us in this way. A must read for anyone, of any sex, of any age. The Fault In Our Stars is quite simply a beautiful, stunning novel. 'Damn near genius . . . The Fault in Out Stars is a love story, one of the most genuine and moving ones in recent American fiction, but it's also an existential tragedy of tremendous intelligence and courage and sadness.' Time Magazine'This is a book that breaks your heart―not by wearing it down, but by making it bigger and bigger until it bursts.' The Atlantic'A story about two incandescent kids who will live a long time in the minds of the readers who come to know them.' People'Funny . . . Poignant . . . Luminous.' Entertainment WeeklyRemarkable . . . A pitch-perfect, elegiac comedy.' USA Today#4 in Australia’s 50 Favourite Kids’ Books poll, 2014
