You guys, this:
This is by far the best book I have read in recent memory. If you are headed to your bookstore/library in the near future (which, you probably are, or SHOULD BE), this is a must-read. Must. Must. Must.
From the inside cover:
“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 book has it all. It’s beautiful, heartbreaking, hysterical, witty, and just so incredible. I’ve never laughed/cried so much while reading. Hazel and Augustus quickly became two of my favorite literary characters, their voices so honest and sad but supremely clever.
John Green deserves the world’s greatest high five for this masterpiece (and like a rucksack full of actual literary prizes).
P.S.! You can watch John read the first chapter here:
