    This was just an amazing book. Words just can't begin to describe how deeply the words on the page drove into my heart. The craft of John Green was something I fell in love with, and his ability to shape the words into just what he wanted giving the reader a better image was thrilling. The characters seemed so real. Everything realistic, beautiful, crystal clear. I found myself falling head over heals for so many characters in just pages of getting to know them. When their hearts ached and they cried, I found myself doing the same. But what I love about this book is that it's not trying to hide the pain of death from the reader, you. John Green doesn't choose to neglect the truth that people die, people leave, we move on. He didn't choose to ignore it and simply write a sappy fairy tale where everything goes "right." He addressed it head on, and lets us know through his characters that it's possible to get over deaths. He let's us know that when somebody we love leaves us, we are not alone suffering through this stage of mourning. Another thing I fell in love with this book were the philosophical meanings behind each chapter, each page, paragraph, sentence, word. Everything had a meaning. "The real heroes anyways aren't the people doing things; the real heroes are the people NOTICING things, paying attention." -The Fault in Our Stars, John Green

      Wonderful book. I would probably say it's for kids 13+, because it deals with more adult topics. It brings to light the topic of Cancer, and it's just great overall.

        Who would have thought that if you were diagnosed with cancer and forced to go to a support group, you’d meet the love of your life? According to Hazel from The Fault in our stars, by John Green, everything is considered a side effect of dying. Cancer, Depression, and so on. Hazel is forced to go to a support group after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer that had traveled to her lungs. In the support group she meets Augustus Waters, and that's where their story begins. This book shows that even in the darkness light can still get through. The setting is in Indianapolis, Indiana, but the two end up traveling to Amsterdam together. In the end things get very intense and unfortunate. I definitely believe that people who like sad, romance novels would really enjoy this book however I would not recommend it for readers under the age of 11 or 12 just because of some language usage.

            This book by John Green is a amazing book about a girl battling Cancer in her lungs. Although I did not agree with all the ideas and emotions portrayed in the book, I do have to say it was a powerful and beautiful book.

              There is a fault in Hazel Lancaster's celestial readings. Diagnosed with lung cancer since age thirteen, she goes through the motions of the day, forced to attend a cancer support group while knowing that her time may be up any second. But every one of Hazel's principles is about to be tested when she meets Augustus Waters. Attracted by his effervescently beautiful looks and personality, Hazel and Augustus' world crash and collide into something entirely their own. Every one of their firsts, their first look, first kiss, first confession of love, bond the lovers with the string of fate. But when health-related threats ending in death loom over the horizon, there will never not be a fault in their burdened stars.

                Oh my goodness, this might be my new favorite book! 16 year old Hazel has cancer. She has to go to a miserable support group every Wednesday. Life for her is depressing and boring, until she meets Augustus. He is her best friend, and they will do everything and anything for each other. Until...Well, I won't tell you that part yet. I would recommend this book to 12 or 13+ (Okay, I'm not that old yet, but still). I will leave you will my guarantee that you will love this book, and I will almost guarantee you that you will cry in chapter 21.

                  I haven't finished reading this book yet but it is the best book I've ever read. I would definitely recommend this book and it is very emotional, but I seem to come back for more every time.very addictive. I would rate this book 5 stars.
