This week, I am waiting on...The Fault in Our Stars by John GreenRelease Date: January 10, 2012
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile
Synopsis: Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 12, 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.
So, as you guys might know, it's John Green Week! Yay! This week, Nerdfighters everywhere are celebrating the upcoming release of John Green's new book. Doesn't it sound fantastic? I saw the video of John Green reading the first chapter on his vlogbrothers channel--I'm hooked! I can't wait until January 10th. :)
What are you waiting on this Wednesday? And DFTBA!
