Add it: Goodreads
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile
Release Date: January 10, 2012
Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 12, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs... for now.NERDFIGHTER PRIDE!
Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.
Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.
I still have not ordered this one (I hope my copy has an anglerfish!) but I'm definitely intending to do that soon. I will say that this is not the cover I was expecting, especially after some of the AMAZING fan-made covers, but maybe it will grow on me.
