Hazel Grace Lancaster is anything but ordinary. Actually she probably
wishes she was ordinary. Because ordinary kids don’t get cancer and they
certainly don’t have to tote around oxygen tanks. Enter Augustus Waters, a
witty terribly handsome one-legged cancer survivor. Hazel doesn’t stand a
chance and neither does the reader. Together they chase a recluse author, battle cancer, help a blind kid, and discover how fantastic living can be. It is impossible not to fall in love with Hazel and Augustus’ epic love story.

John Green has written a superb book. I do not think I cannot stress the intensity and power that he has packed into a mere 318 pages. Yes it is a cancer book and cancer books are generally sad, but The Fault in Our Stars goes well beyond your average ‘cancer story’. This book is a force of emotions to be reckoned with. Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself!

John Green
“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”
