Imagine being 16, imagine having tumors in your lungs, and imagine despite all this being able to live life to the fullest. That's exactly what happens in John Green's novel "The Fault in Our Stars." It all starts one summer day when Hazel Lancaster goes to her cancer support group and meets Augustus Waters, a 17-year-old who happens to be missing a leg.
Augustus compares Hazel to Natalie Portman, and the two hit it off immediately. They share their fears (oblivion) and their loves (books). The two bond over a novel called "An Imperial Affliction", written by Hazel's favorite author, Peter Van Houten. Despite having written her favorite author dozens of letters, the reclusive Van Houten never replies to any of his fan mail. Hazel has given up ever hearing from the author, but thanks to Augustus and an unusual turn of events they go to Amsterdam that holds twists and turns for Hazel and Augustus and rewrites both of their stories. What happens before, during, and after Amsterdam changes Hazel and Augustus forever.

reviews from critics
The New York Times :
"a blend of melancholy, sweet, philosophical and funny"
Bestselling author of The Book Thief, Markus Zusak, describes it as
"a novel of life and death and the people caught in between"
'Expect to laugh, cry and smile throughout this masterpiece'
“The Fault in Our Stars is a love story, one of the most genuine and moving ones in recent American fiction, but it’s also an existential tragedy of tremendous intelligence and courage and sadness.”
“You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world...but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices.”
My thoughts are stars i cannot fathom into constellations
“That's the thing about pain," Augustus said, and then glanced back at” me. "It demands to be felt
“Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.”
