The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (review by Joyce Z. ’17)

The Fault in Our StarsThe Fault in Our Stars by John Green
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Fault in Our Stars starts off with a girl named Hazel Grace Lancaster, whom the reader may forget is not normal while she is narrating the story. Instead, she is diagnosed with lung cancer and uses a miracle product that will keep her alive for a few more years. Augustus Waters has been cancer-free for a year at the cost of giving up one of his legs. The unexpected crossing of their lives creates a fascinating love story of a boy and a girl battling cancer with humor, tragedy, and romance all mixed in. John Green has spun a not so classic fairy tale that will have the reader completely absorbed until the last page. Although Hazel keeps the tone playful for the majority of the book, her insightful view of life will keep the reader pondering the fragility of life even long after it ends. – Joyce Z. ‘17
