The fault In Our Stars By John Green
|Pub date : January 10, 2012|
Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 13, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumors in her lungs... for now.
Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too; post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumors tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.
Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.
First off, have tissues nearby, and if you don't like flat out crying in front of people (I mean sobbing) than read this in a secure room by yourself. I live in an apartment with three other girls (gotta love college...boo) and my roommate keep looking at me like I was crazy( they don’t read, so they don’t understand my pain).
I loved everything about this book, the characters, and the storyline, how he didn’t beautify cancer. This book was an inspiration, it was emotional gripping, and will pull at your heart strings. But it's not just a crying fest I laughed a hell of a lot also,because the character's are just witty.
I won’t be going deeper into the storyline for this review because I fell like any more information, other than what’s provided in the synopsis will just ruin this AMAZING story for future readers.
Overall, this was a great book. I highly recommend it!
P.S Don't forget the tissue... you have been warned!!!
P.P.S go purchase this book!!
