From the summary: 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. 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.
*SEMI-SORT-OF-BUT-NOT-REALLY-SPOILER-ALERT* TFiOS was just released last week, and the author himself has asked that readers not spoil the book for those that haven’t read. And of course, we agree.

Right. *nods* So we received the most amazing emails from our buddy Toni, asking if we’d be interested in a Most Anticipated Books to Swoon in 2012 list. And we were like… Swoon? Books? DUH. Bring it sister. So here it is, the Spring edition of the books we can’t wait to get our hands on, the books we’d gladly sell our soul make an honest trade for. Yeah, that last one.
by Toni: Honestly, when Lo and Christina agreed to let me write this post for Swoontini, I immediately realized I had a dilemma. Somewhere between the happy dancing and jumpy squees, the list had gotten sooo long, sooo fast, and I hadn’t even written any of them down yet. What to do? What to do? Well, I decided to stick to the first half of the year. Otherwise, this post will take about six hours to read.
