'A novel of life and death and the people caught in between, The Fault in Our Stars is John Green at his best. You laugh, you cry, and then you come back for more.' Markus Zusak, bestselling and Printz Honor-winning author of The Book Thief

'The Fault in Our Stars takes a spin on universal themes-Will I be loved? Will I be remembered? Will I leave a mark on this world?-by dramatically raising the stakes for the characters who are asking.'
-Jodi Picoult, bestselling author of My Sister's Keeper and Sing You Home


'John Green writes incredible, honest truths about the secret, weird hearts of human beings. He makes me laugh and gasp at the beauty of a sentence or the twist of a tale. He is one of the best writers alive and I am seething with envy of his talent.' E. Lockhart, National Book Award Finalist and Printz Honor-winning author of The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banksand The Boyfriend List

This is the best novel I've read in ages. It tells the story of Hazel and Augustus, teen cancer suffers, with humour and wit, but without self-pity.  Hazel has, from her first diagnosis, been aware her illness was terminal. At Cancer Kids Support Group she meets Augustus whose diagnosis is a whole lot more promising, though he has lost one leg to cancer. Their relationship is funny, clever and heartbreaking. - Briony


John Green is brilliant if you are tired of reading cliche young adult fiction. His plots don't involve vampires or post-apocalyptic action like most other teen fiction these days, but Green's writing is enough to make his novels unputdownable. His characters are funny and intelligent; he gives teenagers more credit than most other adult, teenage fiction authors. As soon as I finished this I wanted to go back to page 1 and read it again! (Another that I recommend by him is Paper Towns). - Jessie
