Best Books of the Month, January 2012 ( ): In The Fault
in Our Stars, John Green has created a soulful novel that tackles big subjects--life, death, love--with the perfect
blend of levity and heart-swelling emotion. Hazel is sixteen, with terminal cancer, when she meets Augustus at her
kids-with-cancer support group. The two are kindred spirits, sharing an irreverent sense of humor and immense charm, and
watching them fall in love even as they face universal questions of the human condition--How will I be remembered? Does
my life, and will my death, have meaning?--has a raw honesty that is deeply moving. --Seira Wilson

*Starred Review* At 16, Hazel Grace Lancaster, a three-year stage IV–cancer survivor, is clinically
depressed. To help her deal with this, her doctor sends her to a weekly support group where she meets Augustus Waters, a
fellow cancer survivor, and the two fall in love. Both kids are preternaturally intelligent, and Hazel is fascinated
with a novel about cancer called An Imperial Affliction. Most particularly, she longs to know what happened to its
characters after an ambiguous ending. To find out, the enterprising Augustus makes it possible for them to travel to
Amsterdam, where Imperial’s author, an expatriate American, lives. What happens when they meet him must be left to
readers to discover. Suffice it to say, it is significant. Writing about kids with cancer is an invitation to
sentimentality and pathos—or worse, in unskilled hands, bathos. Happily, Green is able to transcend such pitfalls in his
best and most ambitious novel to date. Beautifully conceived and executed, this story artfully examines the largest
possible considerations—life, love, and death—with sensitivity, intelligence, honesty, and integrity. In the process,
Green shows his readers what it is like to live with cancer, sometimes no more than a breath or a heartbeat away from
death. But it is life that Green spiritedly celebrates here, even while acknowledging its pain. In its every aspect,
this novel is a triumph. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Green’s promotional genius is a force of nature. After announcing he
would sign all 150,000 copies of this title’s first print run, it shot to the top of and Barnes & Noble’s best-seller
lists six months before publication. Grades 9-12. --Michael Cart
