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.

    This is a great book. An absolute masterpiece on John Green's part. But jeez, Peter van Houten is no joke. it shows that cancer is a big problem and we shouldn't judge people because they're different.

          The Fault in Our Stars offers a new perspective on cancer, mental health, and hope. The main character, Hazel Lancaster has been living with lung cancer for several years, and she has accepted that she is going to die. Then, she meets a boy, Augustus Waters, and she gains hope that everything could be okay. This book is an emotional roller coaster that never slows down.

              It is difficult to carry on normally with one's life, as if one has not just been broken by John Green of all people, after reading this book. Hazel is frail and sick, with crappy, cancerous lungs and no dreams of romance. And then . . . it happens. She and Augustus, a bone cancer survivor, have a wonderful romance, with the only complications being cancer. However, the romance itself, around which the book revolves, is mediocre compared to the books other factors. Their unique coping mechanisms and philosophies, combined with intense, raw emotions, sealed the deal on this one. I recommend to 13+.
