it was amazing
bookshelves: 2012, age-ya, tearjerkers, realistic

Hazel is dying of cancer. Every week she goes to a support group for kids dying of cancer. Then one week Augustus Waters shows up. He is Hazel's equal in sarcasm and philosophy. Also, he's hot. With Hazel's oxygen tank and Augustus's prosthetic leg, they are the perfect couple. Hazel shares her favorite book, and quickly they are off to Amsterdam to meet the author and get the sequel Hazel has always wanted.

Then someone has to die. This is, after all, a book about teens with cancer.

There was so much that made me laugh, and then I cried through the whole ending. For a while I could not decide if I wanted to avoid reading the ending, so I didn't have to read about dying, but in the end I raced through the ending like ripping off a Band-Aid. I had heard so many good reviews of this book that I did not expect it to meet the hype. It did!

(view spoiler) Never thought I'd find the name Augustus OR Gus remotely sexy, but now... thanks a lot, John Green!
