The Fault in Our Stars
by John Green [YA Green]
One Word: Amazing.
This is just one of those books you could. Not. Put. Down. I would encourage
everybody to read The
Fault in Our Stars. You'd think it would be one of those stupid cliches
where the boy and girl with cancer fall in love but no, it's much more. It shows
the true struggles of a girl with cancer, from family to first love. You'll
laugh, cry, and smile, wanting more with each and every page. -- review submitted by Vanessa L. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library
This book is one of my all time favorites in YA fiction. The voice of the main
character, sixteen year old cancer patient Hazel is both smart and cynical while
still retaining an air of humor and comedy. The actual writing is pure gold. The
writing manages to insert yourself into the main character without being her.
You feel her emotions and pain without being so first person. the story and plot
itself is also refreshingly original and wonderfully planned. -- review submitted by Wyatt P. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library
