Bestselling author John Green returns with an eagerly anticipated and emotional novel about sickness and health, life and death. Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 12, 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. Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and -- shockingly, to her -- interested in Hazel.
Hazel has accepted her diagnosis until she meets Augustus at a cancer support group, forcing her to reexamine her life.
