The Fault in Our Stars
By John Green
Dutton Juvenile, to be released May 1, 2012
The title, The Fault in Our Stars, is a reference to the famous line in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars/But in ourselves, that we are underlings.” The Fault in Our Stars, a novel about teens dealing with terminal illnesses, features Green’s first female narrator, 16-year-old Hazel Grace Lancaster, who is battling thyroid cancer.

So I couldn't even find a full description of the story, and there's no cover art. But who cares!? It's John Green! Though, granted, I do love some of his books more than others, his are some of the smartest, funniest and most heartfelt young adult novels out there today. Right now, I'm reading Will Grayson, Will Grayson (co-written with the fabulous David Levithan), and it's clearly another winner.
Bonus? Green just announced he'll be signing every preordered copy of the book. Every. Single. One. Is he not the nicest? And so freakin' innovative. Read all about it here on PublishersWeekly.com. Can't wait!
