Audie Award Nominee, Best Teens Category, 2013
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.
Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

"An electric portrait of young people who learn to live life with one foot in the grave. Filled with staccato bursts of humor and tragedy, 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, best-selling author of My Sister’s Keeper and Sing You Home)
"It's a testament to John Green's writing and Kate Rudd's narration that, in a book about teenagers with cancer, there are still plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. Green's teens are precocious and clever, and Rudd sells it, delivering every 'or whatever' with perfect teenage inflection and fully inhabiting protagonist Hazel as she navigates the world with lungs ravaged by cancer. When Hazel has trouble breathing, we hear it in the way Rudd gasps and pants between words. It's a sad, funny, smart, beautiful book." (AudioFile)
This book was amazing. the writing was descriptive and deep, it made me cry and then immediately laugh. Young love and young heartbreak. The narrator was ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. I felt so connected with the characters through her reading. I recommend this to anyone and everyone. wow.
I started listening to this book on a Friday evening only listening to the first chapter and completed it by lunchtime on Monday. I couldn't stop listening! The writing and narrating were hands down some of the best. The characters seemed so real as if I "knew" them. Great read!
Yes because it was a nice story considering the situation.
Although it was not the best story I kind of enjoyed it :) It was sad and a reminder of what's happening to people around the world. It was a basic story but a story I recommend. Some light reading/audio...
A heartwarming story that brings you into the life of two young teenagers
with the weight of the world on their shoulders. The story reflects on what it is to live in a world of cancer
