Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.
Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.
What can I say that will make you want to read this book? I could say that it stands out from most Young Adult books I have read because it is not your typical love story. Although there is a love story found within these pages, there is in fact so much more.
The Fault in Our Stars is about a young girl whose 16 years old. Her name is Hazel and she suffers from terminal cancer. She meets a young boy, Augustus, who is 17 and also suffers from cancer. Together they form a strong bond of friendship and love.
At times I laughed and I even cried a time or two. What can I say…I’m a big ol’ softie. Personally I feel some of the best books are those that draw you in emotionally and touch your heart.
Mr Green will take you on an emotional journey and although this book is a work of fiction, you will gain knowledge in some aspects of what it’s like for not only the person who suffers from a terminal illness but how it effects family members and friends.
The Fault is Our Stars is a 5 star read for me. I will be adding it to my small collection of books that reside on my shelves. It is a story that I can see myself reading again and I hope you’ll find time to read it too.
