Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Release Date:
January 10th, 2012

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.

It's the ultimate book to be waiting for these days, I know, seeing how it is going to be released in 6 days. How exciting! As one of the many huge fans of John Green's work, I know this one will be quite a memorable, in-depth novel. The subjects of sickness, health, life, and death are usually hard to tackle. But cheers to John Green! To those of you who have already read this, I stare at you with green eyes. Totally envious here!
