The Fault In Our Stars

“Augustus asked if I wanted to go with him to Support Group, but I was really tired from my busy day of Having Cancer, so I passed.”

Surprise! I’m reviewing a book about something Serious. You know me, I’m normally all about adventure, romance and humor, but guess what? This book had all that, too. Sure, Hazel currently has cancer and Augustus is hoping his cancer will never come back, but they’re alive now and they’re not going to let cancer kill them before it kills them.

I started this amazing book two days ago, and once I got about halfway through, I read straight to the end in one sitting. I finished at about 3 in the morning and even though I was crying throughout the last part of the book, it wasn’t depressing.  Yes, it made me feel sad and angry but also lucky and strangely hopeful.

More than anything, I loved that Augustus embraced the existential questions posed by cancer, and how Hazel came to terms with the way love and pain can be forever linked and how that can sometimes be okay.

Read this book! If you want an emotion-filled story that will make you cry but can also make you laugh, don’t miss The Fault In Our Stars by John Green.  Reviewed by Katie Clark, your Teen Librarian.
