"The Fault in Our Stars" by John Green

'The Fault in Our Stars' by John Green

★★★★★

John Green is a master storyteller. He manages to tell the story of a misfit group of teenage cancer patients without pity or sappiness. What emerges instead is a real portrayal of teenagers who happen to have cancer and all of the highs and lows that come with life, death and adolescence. The characters are amazingly written. I found myself wanting to re-read this book, just to spend more time with Augustus and Hazel.
