The book The Fault in Our Stars is about a girl named Hazel who has cancer. In this story it has some very nice and cute moments, but also has some sad and heartbreaking times. It goes through the eyes of Hazel and talks about her story of meeting a boy named Gus and her struggle of trying to get by all of the complications of her disease. There are a lot of hilarious jokes in the story to lighten the sadness. Overall I loved the story and think that John Green did an amazing job of letting you see what it is like to have cancer. It is a beautiful and tragic tale that teaches you about joy and death. Letting you learn to make the most of every moment that comes to you in life. It was so astounding!
