About this book
This witty, yet heart-wrenching novel debuted at no.1 on the "New York Times" bestseller list and sold 100,000 copies in the first month as a hardback edition. Echoing David Nicholl's "One Day" and Jenny Downham's "Before I Die", this book will appeal to a crossover audience of both adults and young adults alike. Terminal patient, Hazel, is about to be introduced to the gorgeous Augustus Walters, sending sparks flying in this brilliant exploration of the funny and tragic business of being alive and in love.
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.
