    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+.

    Heck yeah. Great movie with lots of action and a decent plot. [Note: Nerds, try not to listen to the dialogue too much. Very bad science.] Also, Tony Stark! The guy's freaking awesome. Overall, fun movie.

    nasuada's book review was featured in Unbroken (The Young Adult Adaptation): An Olympian's Journey from Airman to Castaway to Captive.
    This is by far the best WWII true story I've read, and I've read quite a few. Louie Zamperini was training for the 1940 Tokyo Olympics when they were suddenly cancelled, and the nation was at war. Louie enlisted in the Air Force and soon was in Hawaii, in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor. His incredible tale includes extremely aggressive sharks, world records for time as a castaway, prisoner of war camps, sickness, injuries, mental illness, and redemption. Before reading this book, I wasn't as aware of the extent of Japan's involvement in WWII. It is fairly descriptive: I recommend to 12+.

    1. Hunger Games. I loved it. 2. Age of Adeline. 3. One. You didn't say how big the brick was.

    Hi jilly_bean. I also love fantasy, and some of my favorites are Percy Jackson, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, The Inheritance Cycle, and the Hunger Games.
