The Fault In Our Stars

Buy The Fault in Our Stars from your favorite retailer via the Penguin Portal! 
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.

“In its every aspect, The Fault in Our Stars is a triumph.” -Booklist, starred review

“Luminous.” -Entertainment Weekly

“A smartly crafted intellectual explosion of a romance.” -Kirkus, starred review

A blend of melancholy, sweet, philosophical, and funny. Green shows us true love…and it is far more romantic than any sunset on the beach.” -New York Times Book Review

“One doesn’t like to throw around phrases like “instant classic” lightly, but I can see The Fault in Our Stars taking its place alongside Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret in the young-adult canon. Green’s book is also a good example of why so many adult readers are turning to young-adult literature for the pleasures and consolations they used to get from conventional literary fiction.” -Time

“Green writes books for young adults, but his voice is so compulsively readable that it defies categorization. The Fault in Our Stars proves that the hype surrounding Green is not overblown.” -NPR

“A pitch-perfect, elegiac comedy…it will linger long and hard in the minds of teens and former teens.” -USA Today

“An achingly beautiful story.” -SLJ, starred review

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

Ella November 25, 2015 at 10:36 am

John Green (or whoever reads these),
I would like to say that your book, The Fault In Our Stars, has thoroughly inspired me. At the age of twelve, I was diagnosed with MDS(pre-leukemia) and have been suffering with the rare disease for three years. Upon reading this book, (although I experienced a few emotional breakdowns along the way) I have discovered that there is life past the disease. Instead of focusing on the treatments or the impending threat of oblivion, I have chosen to focus on the life around me: my relationships with friends and family, high school, and doing the things I love to do (dance, cello, etc.). I just wanted to thank you for inspiring me in so many ways and for doing what you love to do.

Thanks on your marvelous posting! I truly enjoyed reading
it, you may be a great author.I will be sure
to bookmark your blog and will often come back someday.
I want to encourage you to definitely continue your
great job, have a nice holiday weekend!


Margaret Luncsford November 20, 2015 at 11:44 pm

Dear Mr. Green,
I am a huge fan of the Fault in Our Stars but, I have a huge question as I’m sure everyone else does;
What happens to Hazel Grace?!
Honestly I wish there was a sequel to the book it has encouraged me to look at things in a total different way. I write stories myself and I think that every author does have their own opinion about what happens to the character(s) in the end and I known I never saw Gus dying instead of Hazel Grace. If you would like to talk to me more on this subject my email is:


Marie Rose November 21, 2015 at 2:33 am

Dear John Green,
My name is Marie. I am 13 years old. I loved your book, but have some questions. Okay, what happens to Hazel? Does she die? Live? If she lives, even for a short time, does she fall in love with someone else? What happens to her mother? Father? And also, Mr. Green, I believe that this book is a lot like An Imperial Affliction… It’s become my Imperial Affliction… I now know the torture that Gus Waters and Hazel Grace went through, given that you neglect to tell readers what becomes of Hazel Grace. But I do believe that a sequel to this book/movie would be a huge hit, and readers can get the same relief that Hazel Grace got on page 78 when Hazel Grace finally received an e-mail from Peter Van Houten. You are an amazing author, and, “Frankly, I’d read your grocery lists,” (page 71)
Yours with great admiration,
Marie R0se


Lauren November 21, 2015 at 9:58 pm

I read The Fault in our Stars in March of this year and it was one of my favorite books I have ever read. I still am wishing that we had a more descriptive ending about what happened to Hazel Grace. Is she still living? Is she happy? Did she die? This has been on my mind ever since.

Dear Mr John Green,
I have read all your published books and have enjoyed all of them immensely! I have just finished reading TFIOS for the umpteenth time and have just realised that its seems to be very much alike an imperial affliction. Did you mean for it to be like that or did it just happen??!!! I also find it very ironic that everyone wants to know what happened to Hazel just like Hazel and Augustus wanted to find out about Anna’s mum, the Dutch Tulip Man etc.!
Obviously I also want to know but it has never really bugged me…. i’ve always just assumed that she dies a few years after Gus dies but when I start thinking about it i’m not sure?!
Thankyou so much for writing these books and I hope you will write more??!!
Daisy (age 14)


LaTonya McCarns November 23, 2015 at 3:38 pm

So I see you ended the book just like “An Imperial Affliction”, but what happens to Hazel? What happens to Isaac? What happens to Hazel’s parents. Yes, Hazel was grieving because pain demands to be felt but that doesn’t mean she still doesn’t live on. Obvious is inedible so Hazel only got one admirer and now that he is gone she feel she has nothing to live for?.. Just please make a sequel Im dying here thanks for your time Mr. John Green.


Britney Geiger November 24, 2015 at 12:29 pm

You’re such an inspiration yourself but what inspires you to write. You seem to comprehend and understand the mind of young readers. What inspires you to write these books?


Laura Neves November 26, 2015 at 9:09 am

Hello, my name is Laura Neves, I am one of his Brazilian fans, so for that reason, know that I am struggling in Inglês. I have some asks on “TFIOS”, if not too uncomfortable I would be happy if find could the answers…1º Why Kaitlyn not appear in the movie? 2º- I also wanted to also know what happens next? This seems totally with Hazel, more, what happens to the parents of Augustus? they do divorce? And about Hazel? she sacrifices to be with your love? And Isaac? how it is? he finds a new love? a new love as Monica? Peter decides to write anything else? well, my attempt to be organized using ordinal numbers,failed, I’m sorry. I know that probably I’m philosophizing to a blank field on the web, you will ever see, but I can not give up. I will do everything so that the text appears in all its fields and sections, I conclude with a great hope and a probable lucky enough to be noticed. Thanks for everything.

coming over again to read additional news.


Dolores November 28, 2015 at 11:27 pm

Dear Mr. John Green,
I, Dolores Briffa, a teacher of English in High School in South East Melbourne want to know one thing. Do you see yourself as Peter Van Houtten? Have you inadvertently placed yourself in your own book somehow, because the torture of not knowing what happens to Hazel Grace after her final “OK” is deafening. Just like her torture of not knowing what happens at the end of “Imperial Affliction.”
I hope that I have a chance to read this book to my middle school students at some point in my teaching career. It is in our curriculum and has soon become one of the greatest books that the students have acknowledged to have read.
Thank you for feeding what makes literary novels so special to everyone.
I teach, not do. I wish I could have the ability to have written just like you but you inspire me to one day share my own stories, and those in my family who have more painful experiences to be appreciated and acknowledged for.
Thank you for continuing to inspire future writing with your prose.
We’re all grateful.
Yours most sincerely,
Mrs. D. Briffa


Matthijs November 30, 2015 at 12:42 pm

Thanks for this great story, the first to make me cry since Owen Meany. And please, no sequel. It’s perfect as it is.


Juan Carlos Chicuellar Cabal November 30, 2015 at 5:55 pm

Hola, sinceramente quiero agradecer esta bella historia que nos ha regalada a nosotros los lectores, en especial por lo que nos inspira, solemos ser personas egoístas viviendo en vanidades materiales, lamentándonos pequeñeces de la vida.
Es divertido leer la forma en que metafóricamente se expresa Augustus Waters y la inteligencia de Hazel Grace. Supongo que volveré a releer su novela un par de veces mas eso no lo dude.

Gracias nuevamente por su novela y bueno me hubiese gustado que en algún momento dado Agustus & Hazel se hubiesen reencontrado de alguna forma espiritual o algo por el estilo. Pero pues a fin de cuentas su novela también refleja una realidad verdadera.


giulia frigo March 9, 2015 at 4:41 pm

Honestly its
Giulia Frigo
P.S. I am your fan, i have 12 years old and my email address is


Hanna March 11, 2015 at 9:24 am

From what i have heard, John Green confirms that Hazel dies about a year after Augustus.


Jen March 15, 2015 at 9:12 am

hey wanted to let you know that john green got his inspiration from a girl named esther grace earl you can read a book about her its called “This Star Wont Go Out”


Rose Frederickson July 5, 2015 at 10:08 pm

Dear Mr.Green, I’m am disheartened to say you have become my Peter Van Houten.In most of the story Hazel is trying to pursue the answers to her questions about An Imperial Affliction, but yet you do not feel the need to tell the readers what becomes of dear Hazel Grace.The Fault in Our Stars has become my An Imperial Affliction.You see I share many qualites with Hazel.I know the feelings that occur in her in the book.Now do not get me wrong I am a fan of the book.Hense “The Fault inOur Stars has become my Imperial Affliction” however I feel it a little conterdictory.If you do feel like speaking with me More on this matter or decide to tell the end of you book ,Mr.Green, I would love to read.”Quite Frankly,I would read your grocery lists” Yours with great admiration, Rose Frederickson


Lisha Lavigne March 13, 2015 at 12:50 am

Really? how do u know it?


Reyhane May 2, 2015 at 8:30 am

:) how do you know ?


Anna November 17, 2015 at 4:34 pm

how do you now??


Sami crafts April 28, 2015 at 7:35 pm

Really? If that’s true that is awesome!!!


Reyhane May 2, 2015 at 11:12 am

Really ? again a book about Ester ??
So you mean that Hazel in the fault in our stars is Ester ? Or Anna is Ester ?


beth August 3, 2015 at 2:48 pm

actually “the star wont go out” was writen by esther earl, john green, lori earl, and wayne earl


Amanda Ireton May 19, 2015 at 3:17 pm

I would like to think that Hazel Grace is Esther because Esther was the girl with the cancer and the tubes and stuff to help her breath.


Tim August 5, 2015 at 11:26 am

Also, Esther’s second name is also Grace. I wonder if he did that on purpose?


Katherine September 14, 2015 at 5:23 pm

I have to say that i agree with you! John Green indeed does NOT tell the ending of what happens to Hazel Grace, or many of the other characters. It might be true that he ended it that way, to add a nice ending, but I myself want to know what happens.


Bookbug November 1, 2015 at 7:19 am

You are indeed correct. All her life, Hazel, searches for answers to what happens to Anna’s mother, the Dutch Tulip Man and Sisyphus the hamster. I’m not John Green who will be able to give precise answers to what happens to Hazel, her mother, Gus’ s parents, Isaac and all but I have a theory of my own which I’d love to share with you. According to me, Hazel eventually dies in her sleep due to her shitty lungs and She and Gus meet again Somewhere with a capital S. Hazel’s parents stay together and her mom becomes a
great Patrick. Isaac stays blind for the rest of his life but meets a
girl who’s ready to accept him the way he is. Gus’ s parents move with his half sisters. This is my theory.


Eve Mendes November 4, 2015 at 7:02 pm

I know I am months late to answering but I feel the exact same way. What has happened to dear Hasel? This has been my question from the first time I ever read it and I keep going back to it. Every time I finish the book once more I always come up with my own version however,Weather it be she died or is living “Happily” With just the thought of Mr.Waters while watching ANTM. But this is just a little of my thought process while reading these books. Have a nice day Love stay beautiful.


Malayna September 23, 2015 at 2:51 pm

haha I understand lol I want a more descriptive ending as well! go on Wattpad and they probably have alternative endings.
