Publication Date: January 2012
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.
Recently, I read The Fault in Our Stars, a book about a sixteen year-old girl named Hazel Grace who was diagnosed with severe lung cancer at the age of thirteen. Throughout her journey she meets several new faces, including one Augustus Walters, who had lost his lower leg in attempt to remove a tumor. As the story goes on their relationship grows and the readers understand their true feelings and how cancer can affect not only the victim, but their family and friends. The book admits the scary truth that everyone will die, but both Hazel and Augustus accept that fact and chose to embrace the good in every day. They have their ups and downs, but their love is stronger than you could ever imagine.
The Fault in Our Stars is a drama, a comedy and a tragedy all in one. It explains a heart-breaking story of a real life issue many are faced with today. The book itself is intelligent and is extremely well written. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a love story, with some laughs along the way. But also someone who isn’t against a good cry. Do you want to know the end of Hazel and Augustus’ story? Read the book and find out for yourself!
