Book Review - The Fault in our Stars - John Green

Book: The Fault in our Stars
Author: John Green

Rating: ****
Age: 12+

I really enjoyed this book because you never knew what would happen next. I could never say, “This will happen next,” because something dramatic always happened and that excited me and made me not want to put the book down.

Hazel had lung cancer for about 5 years and is free of any cancer for 18 months. Hazel goes to a cancer support group to help her with cancer depression, when she meets a handsome teenage boy, Augustus Waters.

I have found some humour and some sadness in this book and my favourite parts were the phrases ( encouragements ) they used, to express how they felt at times. For example, "Good friends are hard to find but impossible to forget."

I would recommended this book for 12+ and adults would also enjoy it. I give this book 4 stars out of a 5 star rating because I really enjoyed reading this book and I am now interested in all the rest of John Green's books.
