A YA cancer story...

The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in Our Stars

By: John Green

Genre: YA fiction

Pages: 318

Published: 2012

Read: November

4 out of 5

For being a book about two teenagers with cancer, I was impressed with Green’s ability to add just the right amount of humor. One page you may be laughing out loud and the next page running for tissue. As with all of Green’s books I have read, the story grabs the reader quickly and doesn’t let go into the ride is over. It reminded me a lot of Nicholas Sparks’ novel A Walk to Remember, but with two cancer teens falling in love and not just one. Green has also co-authored a book with David Levithan, Will Grayson, Will Grayson, which is my favorite Green book. I would recommend both these books to fans of John Green and readers not necessarily looking for a “Happily Ever After” story.
