The Fault in Our Stars

by John Green

published by Dutton Books

2012

Summary

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.

My Review

I admit I read this because my daughter loved it.  I mean- really loved it-and very passionately begged me to read it.  I enjoy reading books she loves because it gives us so much to discuss.  That being said, it was very easy to understand WHY my almost 14 year old daughter loved this story.  The character of Hazel is so well written, she is SUCH a teenager, that kids can’t help but get her.  And add to that the gallant, smart, slightly disrespectful but still nice Augustus Waters.  Who wouldn’t love this guy??  Even Hazel’s parents like him.  I know that almost everyone out there has already read and reviewed this, so I won’t go into the story, except to say it was wonderful, romantic, funny, and extremely sad.  If you haven’t already, please read this book as soon as you can.  And let me know how you liked it!

(and if you have a 14 year old daughter, get her this book)
