This honest and beautiful novel about a terminal cancer patient named Hazel who lives with one foot in the grave as she struggles to experience each day to the fullest was inspired by bestselling author John Green’s work as a student chaplain at a children’s hospital in 2000. His memories of befriending Esther Earl, a 16-year-old girl battling cancer, brought a very personal element to The Fault in Our Stars. Esther lost her fight with the disease in 2010 and this book is dedicated to her.
