It has the ingredients of many a page-turner: with teen love and tragedy, John Green's novel "The Fault in Our Stars" has sold seven million copies and is set to make its film debut in June, starring new Hollywood darling Shailene Woodley. And to top it all off, the novel is the latest read for TODAY's Book Club.
"The Fault in Our Stars" tells the story of 16-year-old Hazel Lancaster, a teen with incurable cancer who meets and falls in love with another patient. The tale was inspired by some of Green's experiences working at a children's hospital as a student chaplain.
