Praise
"[S]mart, witty, profoundly sad, and full of questions worth asking, even those like "Why me?" that have no answer."
"What makes this novel compelling is not a thrill-a-minute plot but the authenticity of characters deeply engaged in trying to live 'forever within the numbered days.' Cranky, funny, sad and scared, Hazel and Augustus buck society's desire to type them as models of heroic suffering, an 'Inspiration to Us All.' They remain fiercely, distinctly themselves."
"Hazel, the most multi-dimensional yet of John Green Girls, may not be able to change the course of her stars, but she navigates their heartbreaking directives with humor, honesty, and--while she would probably deny it--grace."
"Smart, clever, and wise."
From the Publisher
Annotation First love, endless wit, and snarky, dry humor distinguish this young adult novel of teen cancer. The 16-year-old protagonist Hazel has cancer that will likely shorten her life, and she is forced to go to a cancer support group for kids, Hazel is surprised when hot newcomer Augustus Waters stares at her intensely. The two start spending time together, and Hazel not only finds someone who truly gets her, but her own understanding of life alters and transforms. John Green is the author of numerous popular young adult books, including the 2006 Printz Award-winner LOOKING FOR ALASKA.
Editors Note Sixteen-year-old Hazel, a stage IV thyroid cancer patient, has accepted her terminal diagnosis until a chance meeting with a boy at cancer support group forces her to reexamine her perspective on love, loss, and life.
