She’s also depressed (a side effect of dying), and as prescribed by her doctor, she attends a support group for cancer kids. Then, she unexpectedly meets the guy of her dreams; dreams she wasn’t even aware she could have. Augustus “Gus” Waters, is a an amputee battling with osteosarcoma , who also happens to be a gorgeous, brilliant, funny, person that Hazel describes as a “tenured professor in the department of Slightly Crooked Smiles with a dual appointment in the Department of Having a Voice That Made My Skin Feel More Like Skin”. The two quickly become inseparable, and fall into a romantic friendship. A book with an abrupt ending, about a girl with cancer brings them even closer together and leads them on an adventure through Amsterdam to find the reclusive author and finally learn how the story ends. With the prospect of death at every corner, can their relationship survive tragedy? Grades 9 and up, 313 pages
"Despite the medical miracle that has bought her a few more years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, but when Augustus Waters suddenly appears at the Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be rewritten.." *From NoveList Plus

“You are so busy being YOU that you have no idea how utterly unprecedented you are.”
“He shook his head, just looking at me. - "What?" I asked. - "Nothing" he said. - "Why are you looking at me like that?" Augustus half smiled. "Because you`re beautiful. I enjoy looking at beautiful people, and I decided a while ago not to deny myself the simpler pleasures of existence." A brief awkward silence ensued. Augustus plowed through: "I mean, particularly given that, as you so deliciously pointed out, all of this will end in oblivion and everything." I kind of scoffed or sighed or exhaled in a way that was vaguely coughy and then said, "I`m not beau-" - "You are like a millennial Natalie Portman. Like V for Vendetta Natalie Portman." - "Never seen it." - "Really?" he asked. "Pixie-haired gorgeous girl dislikes authority and can`t help but fall for a boy she knows is trouble. It`s your autobiography, so far as I can tell." His every syllable flirted. Honestly, he kind of turned me on. I didn`t even know that guys could turn me on - not, like, in real life.”
"“Don't worry. Worry is useless. I worried anyway” - hazel grace
"I believe the universe wants to be noticed. And who am I, living in the middle of history, to tell the universe that it, or my observation of it, is temporary?" -Hazel's Dad

"Oh, I wouldn't mind, Hazel Grace. It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you" - Augustus Waters (John Green)
"That's the thing about pain," Augustus said, "It demands to be felt"
"Pain is like fabric. The more you have, the more it's worth.
