The Fault in Our Stars

Did you know that some people don’t have it as easy as us? Hazel and Augustus are 2 of the millions of people that suffer from cancer.
These two kids meet at support group and fall in love. Hazel explains it like this “ I fell in love with him like the way you fall to sleep, slowly, but then all at once”.

My favorite part is when Gus uses his one cancer wish to help hazel see her favorite author in Amsterdam. I think this is very romantic!
This book would be great for kids who like realistic fiction and romance stories.

The Fault In Our Stars:

Its a very good book but very sad.
The book is about a teenage girl who has thyroid cancer and thinks shes gonna die even though she doesn’t. She has a friend named Augustus Waters in her support group. Hazel survives but someone doesn’t.
My favorite part of the book was when Hazel survives her cancer.
I recommend this book for people who like sad books.

Paper Towns is a book by John Green. This book is about Margo Roth Spiegelman and Quentin Jacobsen who go on an overnight adventure. The trip includes sabotage using catfish and spray paint, the Orlando SunTrust building, SeaWorld, and the school bully, Chuck Parsons. They remove one of Chuck’s eyebrows with hair removal cream. My favorite part of this book is when they throw a catfish through the window of Jason Worthington’s house. If you like adventure, you will love Paper Towns.

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!
