Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer that has spread to her lungs, Hazel has spent the last three years of her life accepting that her death is imminent, it isn’t a matter of if but when.

Unabashedly flirtatious, Augustus breathes new life into Hazel’s world. Bonding over an obscure novel, the two of them are determined to discover the answers to the loose ends the author has left behind…”
