The Fault in Our Stars

Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 12, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours 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 tumours 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.

The Fault in Our Stars

Ok here I go...
WOW, Such a beautifully written story that The Fault in Our Stars will hold your heart in its metaphoric hands.... a must read!
When I first heard about The Fault in Our Stars,  I thought.. really do I want to read about dying teenagers? If you have spent anytime around an ICU or CCU the last thing you want to do is read a story about watching someone you love die. All that said, I am so very glad that I was coerced convinced by my dear friend Nancy to read this book. Mr Green told the story in such a way that even though you know somewhat what the outcome will be, you will laugh and cry along with the wonderfully witty and dare I say delightfully twisted characters.
   I love each and every one of them. The sick teens, the Horrifically twisted writer, the best friend who has problems of his own, to the parents who are just trying to make the best of a very bad situation.
One of my favorite scenes has to do with throwing eggs at someones house... a delightful side story. If you have read TFIOS you already know the what and whys, if not, there will be a BIG ol' smile on your face when you get to it.
  When our teens take a journey to Amsterdam, Mr Green paints a beautifully descriptive and picturesque moment in time that I will not easily forget, for it is etched forever in my heart and soul. 


 I give The Fault in Our Stars : 5 out of 5 hearts Tis Awesomeness!!
