The Fault in Our Stars

by John Green

'new gen' - Great Fiction for Young Adults eBooks of the Month

LoveReading View on The Fault in Our Stars

Shortlisted for the 2013 Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize

Deservedly No 1 on the New York Times bestseller list, this heart-catching novel is fuelled by the rawest emotions deftly handled but never falsely diluted. The role a book plays in their lives lies at the heart of the burgeoning relationship between Hazel and Augustus, teenagers who meet at a cancer support group. Hazel’s cancer is incurable: she is ‘managing’ her situation; Augustus has already lost a leg to his but he has an 80% chance of survival.  But cancer does not rule them; here are two teens being as normal as they can be while carrying the grisly physical side effects of their treatments and in the complicated face of an uncertain future.  The result is a touching, questioning, funny and insightful novel that can’t be put down. One of the Richard and Judy Spring 2013 Book Club selections.

 

January 2013 MEGA Book of the Month.

 

Perfect for readers who enjoyed Before I Die by Jenny Downham.

The Fault in Our Stars Synopsis

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.
