The Fault in Our Stars tells the story of Hazel Lancaster, a sixteen year-old and a terminally ill cancer patient. She then meets Augustus Waters at a cancer support group, who lost a leg from bone cancer, and together they take a trip to meet the man who wrote Hazel’s favorite book, An Imperial Affliction.

The author, John Green, handles the topic of cancer so well. He is able to take such a serious issue and create a captivating story that balances serious issues, like dealing with cancer, and problems that are not as life-threatening, like finding out the end of a novel, perfectly. The two main characters maintain a great relationship in their time together – one that certainly will keep a person reading. The way they act together just feels like a real relationship, and the constant threat of cancer shortening their time together is heartbreaking. In short, this is a fantastic novel; there is no way to dislike it. 5 out of 5, now go buy it.
