for Cynsations

Enter to win one of two copies of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (Dutton, 2012). From the promotional copy:

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.

Publisher-sponsored. Eligibility: U.S. Deadline: midnight CST Feb. 20.

Booklist Senior Editor Ilene Cooper speaks to author John Green about his new novel The Fault in Our Stars (Dutton, 2012), the difficulties of honestly depicting cancer survivors, and the challenges of signing every single copy of the 150,000 first printing.
