Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 13, 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 was a book that left me overwhelmed with emotions. It was an incredibly gripping story that had me hooked straight away. I became so engrossed in the characters and the story that I would read until the early hours of the morning.
Every single moment between Augustus and Hazel was beautiful. Even when there was sadness there was beauty hiding underneath. I felt connected to the characters immediately which really helped me to enjoy the book.
You know when a book is so perfect you just can't find the words to describe it? The Fault In Our Stars is deffinitely one of them. I could sit here another 4 hours and still not be able to put into words my feelings about this book.
It's filled with humour, tragedy, love and sadness. It will bring you from laughter to sadness and back again. You will experience a wide range of emotions through out the book.
John Green is deffinitely one of the best authors that I have come across. I will absolutely read more of his work.
