The Fault in Our Stars

Synopsis (from Amazon):  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. 

My Review: 

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  A teenage love story, that has such a sad ending.

Favorite Character(s):  It is a tie between Hazel and Augustus.  I loved them both and their story.  

Fast read/slow read:  Super fast!

Cover:  Sorry, but I don't get it.

  1. This is a wonderful book, and I'm not sure he's had a misstep yet. My personal favorite of his is Paper Towns, but I'm loving how this book is expanding people's knowledge of his work and young adult lit in general.
