The Fault in Our StarsThe Fault in Our Stars, tells the story of Hazel Grace a sixteen-year old who is fighting against terminal thyroid cancer. When joining a support group for cancer teens, she meats, the charismatic and charming Augustus Waters, a cancer survivor and amputee. The novel follows their beautiful yet tragic relationship.

I really enjoyed this book, it was beautifully written, and the plot was very captivating. Another thing that I loved about this book were the characters - they were all very complex and "real". Augustus was one of my favorites, because even though he went through so much, he was still willing to love, and try his chance at love again. Hazel was a really strong female character who was able to come to terms with the tragedies of her life.

I would recommend this book to everyone - it is not strictly a girl novel. Since the author is male, I believe that guys would also find this book interesting. Even though it is sad and you will find yourself crying at certain parts, people will like The Fault in Our Stars. Overall it's a lovely story that teaches you to appreciate what you have and make the most of it.
