The Fault In Our Stars by John Green│Review



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

♥My Review♥

This was a really good story and written very well. I really liked it but I didn't love it! There was a lot of hype with this one and I don't feel that it lived up to it.

Havel Grace Lancaster is dying of cancer and goes to her weekly Cancer Kid Support Group where she meets Augustus (Gus) Waters and they develop a kindred friendship right away.

Hazel Grace had already written her life story, but everything changed when Gus came into her life. She is now more active and taking advantage of what life she has left as a teen. This is her story and how her views differ from the norm..

This book deals with life and death and the life of having cancer. I really liked John Green's writing style and believe he is a fantastic author. 

Even though I didn't love this story, I would be willing to read another book by John Green.

I gave this ♥♥♥♥ out of ♥♥♥♥♥ on Goodreads.
