Book Review: The Fault in Our Stars

Book Review:
The Fault in Our Stars – by John Green
By: Camila Guerrero

From chart-topping novels to humorous brotherly videos, John Green is not an ordinary writer. With five novels in seven years, he is a New York Times bestselling author and has receive numerous awards, along with being a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize twice. John wrote Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, The Fault in Our Stars, and co-wrote Will Grayson, Will Grayson with David Levithan. Although Green’s young adult novels focus on serious subjects such as cancer, suicide, isolation, and self-discovery, they are often full of humor, word problems, math puzzles, and eccentric facts.
The Fault In Our Stars is a fabulous book about a young teenage girl who has been diagnosed with lung cancer and attends a cancer support group. Hazel is 16 and is unwilling to go to the support group, but she soon realizes that it was a good idea. Hazel meets a young boy named Augustus Waters. He is charming and witty. Augustus has had osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, but has recently had the all clear.
Hazel and Augustus embark on a roller coaster ride of emotions, including love, sadness and romance, while searching for the author of their favourite book. They travel to Amsterdam in search of Peter Van Houten the author of An Imperial Affliction. While on their trip Augustus breaks some heartbreaking news to Hazel and both of their worlds fall apart around them. If you enjoy young adult books, full of witty humour and heartbreaking events, this book is perfect for you. Expect to laugh, cry and smile throughout this masterpiece by the amazing John Green. I highly recommend this book.
