The Fault In Our Stars

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

Hi John. My name is Bobbi Solano and I am a huge fan of your work. You are such an amazing author. I’ve read all of your books (except Will Grayson, Will Grayson and AAOK, which I am currently reading). I just want to say thank you so much for providing such well-written and relatable literature. In every one of your books I have found an element that rings true to my life and my feelings. You are such an inspiration to me. I hope someday to become a published author just like you. The fact that you have brought to life so many stories that mean so much to do many people is amazing. I can only hope that one day I make that great of an impact on the world. With my future at my heels, I’m curious as to how you got your start. Did you always know you wanted to be a writer? Was it something you just stumbled upon? I guess what I’m asking for is advice. I know you’re very busy with many things to do, but if you could take the time to write back, I will appreciate it so much. Thank you.

Bobbi Solano

P.S. can’t wait to see Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska on the big screen!
