The Fault in Our Stars (Prebound)
This is the story of Hazel and Augustus, teens who meet and fall in love in a cancer support group. By turns hilariously funny and heartbreakingly sad, their paths intersect and move forward. It was so interesting to read the book as both a mother and a daughter -- to feel the grief of Hazel's parents and to feel her desire to be a teenager, her frustration with her circumstances and her informed intelligence throughout it all. John Green's characters have such true voices -- and they celebrate smart teens. What a pleasure it is to read a book that reminds me why I love being a bookseller! For grades 8 and up.— Cathy

“A cancer support group might seem like an unlikely place to meet your true love, but for Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters the stars align and these two sweetly cynical souls find each other at an interesting moment in their lives. In a story brimming with mystery, humor, and lots of love, Hazel and Augustus show readers that life is made up of a million moments worth noticing -- much like a night sky filled with 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.
Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, "The Fault in Our Stars" brilliantly explores the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.
