Laona’s June Recommendation

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

“I recently finished The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. This is a Young Adult book that reads beautifully.   Here is a book description: ‘Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.’  I laughed and cried uncontrollably through this book — often experiencing both emotions on the same page. The characters are honest and believable and they stole my heart.  For those who don’t read YA books because there is “too much angst,” please give this novel a chance to change your mind.”
