Title: The Fault in Our Stars

Author: John Green

Published: 2012

Description: 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. (Taken from Goodreads)

I read this book a little over a year ago and my enthusiasm and love for it has not wavered.

This book is amazing and I believe everyone, everywhere should put down what they’re doing and read it immediately.

The characters are awesome! John Green does such a great job making them real and human. Hazel has cancer but she doesn’t ever stop being a person, she doesn’t become shell of a person because of her disease. She’s funny and kind, she has hobbies, hopes, dreams, fears. You never pity her, I mean you are sad that she has cancer and she’s going to die too soon but you never feel that she’s less of a person because of it.

Augustus Waters is the boy. He is so kind, caring and loving. He understands her fears and her hopes. He gets it because he’s been through it but I swear, I think he would get it even if it didn’t happen to him. Their relationship was so amazing and powerful and better than most that get all the time in the world.

John Green went above and beyond with this book, these characters, this story and it will always have a place in my heart and on my most beloved book list.

To follow-up this amazing story, 20th Century Fox bought the rights for the screenplay and made an equally amazing movie.

The movie captures the characters and their story so well. It made me feel all the emotions I felt reading the book. The actors, Shailene Woodley (Hazel Grace Lancaster) and Ansel Elgort (Augustus Waters) do such a great job making me believe that this is their life.

Watching the movie and reading the book takes you on such an emotional roller-coaster but I guarantee you it’s well worth it.
