The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. See what John Green has to say about his book.
It is a young adult book but easily read by adults, should be read by adults. The story is about teenagers who meet in a cancer support group- Hazel Grace (terminal) and Augustus Waters (80% chance of survival). The dialogue is near perfect, the storyline riveting, and their friendship amazing. It is insightful and echoes with all the themes that saturate our lives: how to leave your mark on this world, will we be remembered, the need to be valued, how to live and die. Hazel has used up her “wish” but Augustus will share his and they are off on an adventure with twists, laughs and tears. I can’t stop thinking about this book!
