The Fault in Our Stars

Winner of the Buxtehuder Bulle 2012 and of the Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis 2013, category Preis der Jugendlichen

Krebsbücher sind doof , sagt die 16-jährige Hazel, die selbst Krebs hat. Sie will auf gar keinen Fall bemitleidet werden und kann mit Selbsthilfegruppen nichts anfangen. Bis sie in einer Gruppe auf den intelligenten, gut aussehenden und umwerfend schlagfertigen Gus trifft. Der geht offensiv mit seiner Krankheit um. Hazel und Gus diskutieren Bücher, hören Musik, sehen Filme und verlieben sich ineinander - trotz ihrer Handicaps und Unerfahrenheit. Gus macht Hazels großen Traum wahr: Gemeinsam fliegen sie nach Amsterdam, um dort Peter Van Houten zu treffen, den Autor von Hazels absolutem Lieblingsbuch.
Ein tiefgründiges, emotionales und zugleich freches Jugendbuch über Krankheit, Liebe und Tod.
Rezension
CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR THE FAULT IN OUR STARS :
"Damn near genius . . . The Fault in Our Stars is a love story, one of the most genuine and moving ones in recent American fiction, but it's also an existential tragedy of tremendous intelligence and courage and sadness." - Lev Grossman, TIME Magazine
"This is a book that breaks your heart-not by wearing it down, but by making it bigger until it bursts."
- The Atlantic
"A story about two incandescent kids who will live a long time in the minds of the readers who come to know them."
-People
"Remarkable . . . A pitch-perfect, elegiac comedy."
-USA Today
"A smarter, edgier Love Story for the Net Generation."
-Family Circle
"Because we all need to feel first love again. . . . Sixteen-year-old Hazel faces terminal cancer with humor and pluck. But it isn't until she meets Augustus in a support group that she understands how to love or live fully."
-Oprah.com , a Best Book selection and one of "5 Books Every Woman Needs to Read Before Her Next Birthday"
"[Green's] voice is so compulsively readable that it defies categorization. You will be thankful for the little infinity you spend inside this book."
-NPR.org
"Hilarious and heartbreaking . . . reminds you that sometimes when life feels like it's ending, it's actually just beginning."
-Parenting magazine
"John Green deftly mixes the profound and the quotidian in this tough, touching valentine to the human spirit."
-The Washington Post
"[Green] shows us true love-two teenagers helping and accepting each other through the most humiliating physical and emotional ordeals-and it is far more romantic than any sunset on the beach."
- New York Times Book Review
"In its every aspect, this novel is a triumph."
- Booklist , starred review
"You know, even as you begin the tale of their young romance, that the end will be 100 kinds of awful, not so much a vale as a brutal canyon of tears. . . . Green's story of lovers who aren't so much star-crossed as star-cursed leans on literature's most durable assets: finely wrought language, beautifully drawn characters and a distinctive voice."
- Frank Bruni , The New York Times
"A novel of life and death and the people caught in between, The Fault in Our Stars is John Green at his best. You laugh, you cry, and then you come back for more."
- Markus Zusak , bestselling and Printz Honor-winning author of The Book Thief
" The Fault in Our Stars takes a spin on universal themes-Will I be loved? Will I be remembered? Will I leave a mark on this world?-by dramatically raising the stakes for the characters who are asking."
- Jodi Picoult , bestselling author of My Sister's Keeper and Sing You Home
"John Green is one of the best writers alive."
- E. Lockhart, National Book Award Finalist and Printz Honor-winning author of The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks and We Were Liars

John Green, self-proclaimed nerdfighter, YouTube-Celebrity and author, has written this extraordinary book.
Dedicated to his friend Esther Grace the book's storyline is somewhat inspired by her sickness, which is thyroid cancer.

This story is about lots of things: being in love, growing up, dealing with sickness, appreciating what you have and having faith. If it weren't for cancer Hazel would be like lots of other teenage girls too, a book-loving, slightly sarcastic yet realistic 16-year-old. Terminally ill she tries to be brave for her parents and doesn't expect all too much. But when she meets Augustus in her support group for kids with cancer things change. She experiences things she never thought she'd be able to experience...

I am amazed at the fact that such an authentic female character, especially a teenager, has been made up by a man. John Green portrays Hazel beautifully and makes it easy for the reader to sypathize with her.
I really enjoyed reading this book whether I was laughing or crying at the time and highly recommend it to every teenager aged 14 and up.

By the way, this book is also going to be made into a movie in 2014!
