Not sure why I chose to read this except that I’d seen it on many bestseller lists. In general, I don’t choose YA fiction although I thoroughly enjoyed The Hunger Games series. I read those due to the buzz.
The Fault in Our Stars is SO well-written: it’s lyrical, quotable, smart, funny and moving. Everything you look for in a novel about a young girl with terminal cancer. 16-year-old Hazel meets the charming Augustus in a cancer support group. The two have an honest, sweet first love that maybe only dying cancer patients can have.
