The Fault in Our Stars by John Green


Hazel and Augusts meet in a therapy group for kids with, cancer. A friendship is quickly forged. They swap books and bond over, Hazel's favorite novel, An Imperial Affection. This bond sends them on a once in a lifetime trip to, Amsterdam to meet the reclusive, Peter Van Houten (author of, An Imperial Affection).


A raw look into the life of teenagers with cancer. A story of love, adventure and loss. 

An exceptional story --- Hazel and Augustus are beautifully written characters. Green has a unique way of capturing adolescences and pulling adults back into that time frame. The writing is crafty and the character's are witty. 

One could say this is a book about cancer but cancer is just a part of the storyline. The story is about so much more. It is a fast read with some adult themes.
