The Fault in Our Stars

 

Hazel has terminal cancer and she’s trying to figure out how to live in the world knowing that she will die soon.  She’s too sick to go to school, she’s in and out of the hospital, but her parents still want her to be a normal kid and have friends.  Hazel goes to a support group for kids with cancer and it’s here that she meets Augustus, a boy who has beat cancer. Augustus is amazing and funny and witty and he immediately notices Hazel.  Hazel and Augustus become friends and go on a quest to find an author of a book that they both love.  Throughout the book, they deal with the fact that they know that Hazel is going to eventually die because of her cancer.

This is a beautiful book.  I love that the author John Green writes a book about two teenagers who happen to have cancer and he doesn’t write a book about people who have cancer and happen to be teenagers.  This book is full of witty, funny, sad, tragic events.  I loved reading the story of these two characters and they way they so bravely deal with the events of life.  If you like books that make you feel and make you better, you should read The Fault in our Stars.
