The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

First, let me confess that I really love John Green’s books. I knew that I would love his latest one, but what I didn’t know was how much I would love it. Looking for Alaska has been the book by which all his other books have been judged and none of them quite reached the same level, until now!

The Fault in Our Stars is about 16-year-old Hazel who has Stage IV thyroid cancer. Her medical miracle is still holding, but she needs an oxygen tank to help with her breathing. Her mother forces her to attend a cancer support group, where she meets Augustus. Augustus lost a leg to cancer but is currently in remission. “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.”

This is not a “boy book” or a “girl book”; this is a book that can speak to everyone willing to take the journey.

    Ever since I first started watching vlogbrothers videos, I was completely enamored by John Green. I read all his previous books and absolutely loved them! I borrowed my sister’s copy of TFiOS once she was done and I could not put it down. I literally did nothing but read. It took me about 6 hours to read. I have never cried so hard in my life, and despite its downs, this book has an equal part of ups. I can’t think of a book more appropriate to recommend, to anyone. This is a seriously perfect book and there was not fault in this star. 🙂
