The Fault in Our Stars
Sophomores - Seniors pick one
Beautifully written and pungent as all get out. Read it out loud to someone you love.
Okay, the tears have stopped rolling off my nose. The subject is life among cancer-stricken teenagers. Loss, anger, pain, family, dreams, frustrations are treated honestly, with humor and pathos. From the eulogy of one of main characters comes this line, "You don't get to choose if you get h... Read More »
Knew the premise going in, yet was blown away by how moving it was. Terrific writing, with an authentic feel for teen expression.

Review for the fault in our stars- hailey caton
The fault in our stars is a sad cancer story and an excellent love story but it is not any ordinary cancer book. In the Fault in our stars we follow Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus waters on an exciting journey of their love. Augustus is in love with hazel but hazel says she is a grenade and doesn’t want to get too close to Augustus. What will happen when Hazel finally falls for Augustus and one of them has bad news?
I thought this was a great book because it tells a really good story that is hard for me to categorize in any type of book genre. The Fault in Our stars maybe a cancer book but it is not an ordinary cancer book its an extraordinary cancer book with a great tale of love and an exciting mini adventure packed in one book and told in about 526 pages.
This is a very good book. A little bit of a twist on a teen love story. Watch out for the sexual references, cursing and the sexual scenes. Otherwise very well written.
This is a magnificent love story about two teens with cancer.
It is all about how Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters spend their time together as they fall in love.
Through ups and downs and terrifying trips to the ER they are hopefuls.
It shows that just because you have cancer, doesn't mean you are a useless game piece on the board of life.
This story will captivate you from beginning to end, as you experience the roller coaster ride that is their lives.
It is a must read for all.
Hazel Grace knows she is nothing if not terminal. Then she meets Augustus Waters and falls in love. She then realizes that some infinites are bigger then other infinites.
This heartwarming, yet heartbreaking story displays the beauty of true love, with an extremely sad twist at the end.
