Hazel Grace is a sixteen-year-old with terminal lung cancer. She is content with a quiet existence spent reading, watching America’s Next Top Model, and attending the occasional cancer support group meeting. Then she meets Augustus Waters. Energetic, witty, sensitive Augustus, aching to leave a permanent mark on the world, will show her that every day can be filled with an astonishing amount of magic and heartbreak. Interwoven with mythology, poetry, and video games, this is not what Hazel refers to as “the typical cancer book”.
