The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in Our Stars - John Green You told me this was a great read, but I ignored you, thinking John Green was just another author of Sad Teenager Stories. I was wrong. The Fault in Our Stories is the story of a sixteen-year-old girl, Hazel, who has been dying of cancer for the last three years. Her mother forces her to get up out of bed and socialize, and, in this quest to help her shake off depression, she takes her to a Cancer Support Group. And there Hazel meets the oh-so-handsome Augustus Waters. He, too, has been fighting cancer, with one of his legs lost in his battle.Hazel and Augustus talk books which leads them off on a wild trip to meet the world’s worst behaved author, all the way in the Netherlands. I was right, too, though; this book is a Sad Teenager Story. But, oddly, it is also a Happy Teenager Story, and that mix, plus the wonderful characters of Hazel and Augustus and, yes, even the Awful Author, that you will want to meet make it a must-read.
