Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 13, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs... for now.
Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too; post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.
Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.
"Love is keeping the promise anyway."

John Green was success on writing a novel with 16 years old girl's POV. I could feel the presence of teenage girl, with all her words and thoughts. I felt like I was a teenage again through Hazel's POV.
The main characters had cancer, but that's not all about the book. The story is more about love, friendship, parenthood, dreams, and how you live your life. It's a simple story, but beautifully writen. God, how can words be amazing in such a book?
The way John Green wrote this story is the most amazing point. He made it not a sloppy book (although I almost cried), he made the simplicity became a strong story. The humors on the book are also the great parts. When I was about to cry, I eventually laughed on the next sentences.
I love Hazel. The character was built very well. We'll see how Hazel changed in a good way. I also love Gus, he's like all girls' dreamy man. But my favorite is Hazel's dad, I really adore him. He's very sensitive and cried a lot, but he didn't make a dramatic scene, he just cried for himself. I want to have a father like him, or husband..lol
This is my first contemporary novel I've ever read without any supernatural or magic things. And This book is simply amazing. I read slow on some chapters, but in the few last chapters, the story went fast and I couldn't put it down and kept reading.
If you haven't read this book, go to bookstore now, buy and read this! This book is marketed for YA readers, but believe me, you can read this in any age. Your mother, your father, brother, sister, friends, teacher, everyone can be given a chance to read this beautiful book.
You can watch the book trailer by clicking the youtube link. It's my favorite book trailer ever.
And watch the full song which is used for the book trailer! The song wasn't made for The Fault In Our Stars so the lyric is not about the book. It's from Nerdfighteria event which held by Green brothers.
Permafrost by Laurena Segura. She's a talented singer, check out her channel.
Also watch a song by SuperCoolFunnyVideos which was made based on the TFIOS book. This is awesome and I'd like to share this. Click the link below to watch the video.
And last but not least,
Don't Forget To Be Awesome!
