Books: The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

I have been trying to find the words for this book that will do it justice. I finished it about a month ago now and I still don't know if I have the right words. This book does not sugar coat cancer. It's real, raw and as someone who has little knowledge about the horrible disease this book opened my eyes. I found that most of my peers reading the books were heavily involved in the romance between Hazel Grace and Augustus which of course was a major part of the book but I found myself focusing on other things.

Obviously Hazel Grace is an incredibly sassy character but she was real and honest about her life and the cards she was dealt. That is what hit me the hardest, these children who were dying and have been dying for years understood and accepted their fate and in spite of that they welcomed love into their lives even if it would only be a "little infinity".

"I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity."

- Hazel Grace

About the Fault In Our StarsDespite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.
