Emotiva, irónica y afilada. Una novela teñida de humor y de tragedia que habla de nuestra capacidad para soñar incluso en las circunstancias más difíciles. A Hazel y a Gus les gustaría tener vidas más corrientes. Algunos dirían que no han nacido con estrella, que su mundo es injusto. Hazel y Gus son solo adolescentes, pero si algo les ha enseñado el cáncer que ambos padecen es que no hay tiempo para lamentaciones, porque, nos guste o no, solo existe el hoy y el ahora. Y por ello, con la intención de hacer realidad el mayor deseo de Hazel -conocer a su escritor favorito-, cruzarán juntos el Atlántico para vivir una aventura contrarreloj, tan catártica como desgarradora. Destino: Amsterdam, el lugar donde reside el enigmático y malhumorado escritor, la única persona que tal vez pueda ayudarles a ordenar las piezas del enorme puzle del que forman parte.

Hazel Grace und Augustus lernen sich in einer Selbsthilfegruppe für Krebspatienten kennen, und was hier beginnt, ist einer der ergreifendsten und schönsten Liebesromane der Literatur.
Miles hat die Schule gewechselt. Auf dem Internat verknallt er sich in die schöne Alaska. Sie ist das Zentrum ihres Sonnensystems, der magische Anziehungspunkt des Internats. Wer um sie kreist, ist glücklich und verletzlich gleichermaßen, euphorisch und immer nah am Schulverweis. Alaska mag Lyrik, nächtliche Diskussionen über philosophische Absurditäten, heimliche Glimmstängel im Wald und die echte wahre Liebe. Miles ist fasziniert und überfordert zugleich. Dass hinter dieser verrückten, aufgekratzten Schale etwas Weiches und Verletzliches steckt, ist offensichtlich. Wer ist Alaska wirklich?
