2012 - Dutton Juvenile
Just for clarity's sake, I liken this book and it's author to Nick Hornby, not Bruce Hornsby. And as another aside, I didnt realize this was a juvenile book until I looked up the publisher for this review. Ha. The line blur, I swear!
Anyway, the more I think about this book, the more I like it. The subject matter and story line would automatically make me run in the other direction, but m glad I gave this a shot. Great book. A really great 8-star book.
Amazon description - 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.

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.
