The Fault In Our Stars

by John Green

Hazel Grace Lancaster is a sixteen year old girl with terminal cancer, forced to attend a Cancer Kid Support Group by her mother. Here she meets the charismatic Augustus Waters, and her life takes a turn for the better. He falls in love, quickly.

The two central characters, Augustus and Hazel are real, funny and have personality and voices that leap off the page. One minute you will be laughing, and the next completely sobbing. We couldn’t put down this raw, epic and completely overwhelming young adult novel, and  can’t remember the last time we read a novel that that moved us in this way. A must read for anyone, of any sex, of any age. The Fault In Our Stars is quite simply a beautiful, stunning novel.
