Synopsis From Goodreads:
Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 13, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs... for now.

Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too; post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.

Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind

My Review/Opinion:
I KNEW KNEW KNEW KNEW KNEW KNEW KNEW John Green would get this subject right!!!!  Weather you’ve ever been around someone sick or someone fighting a life threatening illness or someone who knew someone who’s been through it… DON’T MISS THIS BOOK!! These people are real. Their actions and reactions ring true at every turn…and to think people wondered if John could do a female protagonist. He got every nuance of teens, parents of teens, sick teens, healthy teens, young adult teens, immature teens, and weird old dudes spot on. This is how it is. These kids are as real as anyone I know…and I know so many like them.

I loved this book.


  1. I'm a little worried about reading this...I get pretty emotional with sick kids :(

  2. I'm glad this book didn't disappoint you. I was worried that it might. I need to read it soon.

    1. Jenni, it is soooo good!! don't forget the tissues though!

  3. Oh man, I really, really want to read this book now!
