“Bright, witty conversation, along with the pain of teens living with cancer. A welcome variation from Green's usual unattainable woman books, although, one could argue that falling in love with a girl with cancer is falling in love with someone with whom one can have not future.
Hazel is dying of cancer. She must always be hooked up to oxygen, and has her lungs emptied of fluid fairly regularly. She meets Augustus at a cancer support group. He is in remission, but lost his leg to cancer years ago. A recipe for disaster? Could be, but John Green makes it believable, and I really enjoyed spending time with Hazel and Augustus!”

“Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 13, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs... for now. Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind. This is a must read book!!:)

“Sad but so well written. Humor lightened the topic and I truly cared for both Gus and Hazel Grace.John Green is an incredible writer. Very poignant connections to No Death, No Fear made our HCC discussion deeper.”Susan F wrote this review Wednesday, April 3, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
