Synopsis

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.

Jen’s Review

That about sums things up ūüėČ

Okay, seriously. I’m not¬†normally into stories¬†about cancer and sickness and whatnot. They’re just too sad and depressing. However, ¬†I¬†made an exception for The Fault in Our Stars¬†after hearing so many wonderful things about it.¬†And I’m glad I did! This is a special story everyone needs to¬†read. It has a touching plot, plenty of takeaway¬†messages, and a cast of sincere characters. I especially love Augustus (I think most readers do). Simply put, he’s a good guy. A good, sweet, authentic, lovable guy. In fact, when¬†my sister was trying to think of a name¬†for her next kid, I suggested August…She almost used it, too. Darn!

I won’t lie. This is a heartbreaking story. And you will need tissues. But the pain is worth it, I promise!
