The Fault in Our Stars – by John Green – independent book review – Fiction

Be prepared to get sucked into this book immediately by its clever dialog and sophisticated humor. The young adult characters are intelligent, witty, thoughtful, and admirable. Awarded four stars on Goodreads.

Although the main characters are teens with cancer, you will enjoy getting to know them, watching their relationships deepen, and learning from the ways they deal with illness and the possibility of death. And at the core of this book is a wonderful love story, full of optimism, loyalty, and deep human connection.

There ARE some deeply sad moments but the ending leaves you with a surprising appreciation of life, love, and family.
