I had heard so much hype over John Green's The Fault in our Stars, that I knew I had to read it! So read it I did - and I could hardly put it down. What an inspiring read!! It is the beautiful story of Hazel and Augustus and their chance meeting at a cancer support group - and the relationship that develops because of that chance meeting! You could empathize with their struggles with their health, their hopes for a full and rich future and yet see their angst as two teens falling in love. I was touched by the story - it was well-written and stirring. I would highly recommend it - although I hesitate to say gung-ho, have all of your teens read it. I would caution that there are some things that I am not sure I'd want my teens to read in their early years - so I will throw that out there. I enjoy a good love story and this one had that - the tragedy is very real but so is the humor - it was a wonderful balance.
