The Fault in Our Stars Review

An extraordinarily heartwarming book, yet tragically sad at the same time, The Fault in Our Stars written by author John Green, has gained popularity since its publication in January of 2012. The book has gained so much attention that a movie based on the book, will be released in June 2014, starring Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, and Nat Wolff.

The book is about a teenage girl Hazel Grace Lancaster suffering from stage four Thyroid cancer, who’s managed to stay alive, thanks to an experimental drug.  Hazel’s parents started to force her to attend a cancer support group for kids living with cancer. She found this support group extremely boring until a boy by the name of Augustus Waters, who lost his leg to cancer and is now in remission, began attending the meetings.
As you continue reading the book, you watch Hazel and Augustus fall in love and spend time together, you even see Augustus making Hazel’s dream come true. The writing makes it seem as if you’re actually in the story, getting to see Hazel and Augustus support each other through their struggles with cancer.
“I think John Green’s writing in The Fault in Our Stars was intelligent, witty, and beautifully written,” sophomore Savannah Rootes said.

The mix of tragedy, romance, and friendship is perfectly combined to end up with a superbly well written book with lots of plot twists, wisdom, and intelligent dialogue. This memorable story has become a New York Times bestseller and has received many amazing reviews. The Fault in Our Stars is one of the best books of its genre to recently be published.
