The Fault in Our Stars

John Green
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.
This is definitely one of John Green's best books. The author had the fortunate experience of getting to know a young fan with cancer and was able to use her stories to create a wonderfully realistic story of what life is like to be a "cancer kid." The book combines regular teenage angst (is he going to kiss me?) with the ever present black cloud of terminal cancer. The book is funny, sad, witty, and charming. You will not want to put this book down to discover what happens to Hazel, Augustus, their blooming romance, and a crazy author living in Amsterdam.
