The Fault in Our Stars
by John Green
Genre: YA fiction
Review: Okay, so admittedly the premise of this book sounds depressing. A cancer survivor, Hazel, isn't living her life. Her life has a clear sell-by date, but her mom forces her to go to a corny cancer support group. There she meets Augustus. They bond over discussing favorite books and they are there for their mutual friend when he's going through a hard time. Together, they set out on a quest to meet Hazel's favorite author. Despite my summary that in now way captures the essence of the novel, I hope you'll read it. The voice is unique, the writing is biting, witty, and fast-paced.
This book will also be a movie starring Shailene Woodley!
