Warning! This review contains spoilers! Hazel and Jack are best friends. But Jack starts acting weird, and ditches Hazel. Hazel is absolutely devastated. Then Jack goes missing, and Hazel sets out to find him. What I thought of it: I didn't get it. Hazel was just annoying. She was always complaining. She completely overreacted when Jack started being "mean" to her. She was really dependent on Jack, and I found that slightly creepy. I couldn't bring myself to really like her even a little bit. Hazel's mom was annoying too. She tried to shove Hazel into a friendship with some girl, and Hazel just went along with it. She didn't really seem concerned at all when Hazel was complaining about Jack's weird behavior. She basically just saw it as a chance for Hazel to just forget about him and make friends that are girls. The writing style was awful. It was very descriptive, and that got really old really fast. The author used a lot of metaphors that didn't really make sense. It was extremely annoying. The only 2 characters that I actually liked were Jack and that girls uncle. Jack seemed like a really cool guy. Hazel really didn't deserve him. The uncle was really awesome. I didn't understand how Jack's parents thought that he was visiting his aunt. Were they under a spell? It was extremely boring. The first part seemed like Realistic fiction, but the second part seemed like Fantasy. That really annoyed me. Hazel's trip through the woods was boring, and it seems like it would never end. She meets a lot of people, and none of them turn out to be how she thought they'd be. The moral of the story seemed to be that you can't REALLY be friends with someone of the opposite gender without complications, and that it's better to stick with friends that are the same gender because if you have a friend of the opposite gender it's inevitable that you'll drift apart. I thought that was down right stupid. I could barely finish reading this, and I thought about stopping and never finishing it because I didn't really care how it ended. I had high hopes for this book. I read a lot of reviews praising it for how wonderful it was. I honestly don't know why everyone loves this book, and thinks it's so beautiful. Overall I hated it. This one of the worst books I've read in a while. Which is why I had to review. I need to save people. There was one girl who I told how much I hated it and she said she wouldn't read it. Everyone who didn't like this book, review. We could be the superheroes of literature.
