The Fault in Our Stars tells the story of the star-crossed love between Hazel and Augustus—both of whom are surviving with cancer, despite seemingly impossible odds. As their relationship progresses—and through a shared affection for the sole novel written by a mysterious author—both characters learn and experience things that would have been impossible without their interdependence.

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love. 

Great Discussion Starter
The title of this novel comes from William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar in a quotation that states, “The fault, dear Brutus is not in our stars, / But in ourselves, that we are underlings.”

“Beautifully conceived and executed, this story artfully examines the largest possible considerations—life, love, and death—with sensitivity, intelligence, honesty, and integrity. In its every aspect, this novel is a triumph.” —Booklist (starred review)
