The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
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.
Honestly, this is one of the best books I have ever read. John Green is a magnificent writer and he definitely knows his stuff. Hazel and Augustus’ story will make you laugh, melt, bite your nails, and sob into a pillow at two in the morning. TFIOS is wonderfully realistic, and each of its characters is perfectly crafted. They seem alive, like real people, and each one has something completely unique about them. Hazel and Augustus are two of my favorite literary characters, and their story is one I will never forget. I cannot fully convey my love for this book with words, it’s just too frigging amazing.
