Our customer reviews

Summary: Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten. My Opinion: The cover looks simple, but it's so nice. The title and the author are written on different clouds and around them is a sentence from Jodi Picoult's (My Sister's Keeper, Handle with Care) review. The title sounds really good. Hazel is the protagonist of the story. Hazel is 16 years old and has Stage IV lung cancer. She goes to collage and to a support group, where she meets Augustus for the first time. Augustus, who has one leg and cancer. He loves metaphors. The content is great. In the book is another book. Hazel has read it a dozen times. Augustus reads it after Hazel's recommendation. It's author makes me angry, but at the end he gets a little sympathize from me. Hazel and Augustus know they're going to die, but they don't hide it. The writing style of John Green is adorable. I fell in love with it. At the last 60 pages I cried the whole time, while reading. I loved this book and it's a good book to cry. I recommend it to you.show more
