I was on the waiting list for months for The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, feeling like the only person on the planet who hasn’t read this one. And I devoured it.
I read it almost in one day, having to put it down near the end because I was going on the Metro and just knew I was at an almost-sad part and didn’t want to be “that girl” crying on the Metro.
The Fault in Our Stars is about Hazel, a sassy, honest, super-smart teenager with cancer. At a support group, she meets Augustus, who basically sweeps her off her feet.
Hazel and Augustus are just awesome characters. They are smart, philosophical, and fun.
I enjoyed every minute of this book, and if you haven’t picked it up yet, you must. I can see why everyone on the planet (now I’m included!) has picked this one up.
What book touches your heart, in maybe a sad, but also smart, way?
