Book Review Winner Term 2
The Fault in our Stars
The Fault in our Stars is about a teenage girl who has been diagnosed with lung cancer and attends a cancer support group.
Hazel Grace is a sixteen year old teenager and is reluctant to attend the support group. Who would have thought? I mean, rebellious much? But soon she realises that going to the support group isn’t all bad after all. Hazel meets a boy her age, his name is Augustus Waters, he’s charming and witty. Augustus has osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer but Augustus has recently had the all clear.
Hazel and Augustus embark on a rollercoaster ride of emotions, including love, sadness and romance, while searching for the author of their favourite book. They travel to Amsterdam in search of Peter Van Houten, the author of “An Imperial Affliction”. While on their trip Augustus breaks some heart breaking news to Hazel, which leads both their worlds to fall apart around them.
If you enjoy young adult books full of witty humour and heart breaking events, then this books is perfect for you. Expect to laugh, cry and smile throughout this masterpiece by the amazing John Green. I highly recommend this book.
