Review #210: The Fault in Our Stars- John Green

Title: The Fault in Our Stars
Author: John Green
Pages: 313
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Summary: 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.
Review: I was very hesitant to read this book after I had read Looking For Alaska and not liking it, but I'm very glad I picked up The Fault in Our Stars, it blew my mind. I could feel every emotion that he characters felt. I ugly cried numerous times. I was actually a bit shocked with what happened, it was quite the twist. I definitely wasn't expecting it until it happened. I don't really even know how to review this book. It was so beautiful, moving and eye opening. I loved being along for the ride. 
I love both of these characters. They were so strong, brave and filled with love. This was such an emotional roller coaster to be on. I want to know what happens now. Much like the characters in the book, I am seeking an answer I might never receive, I can assume, but I want to know what John Green thinks will happen now.
I would recommend this novel to everybody and anybody. Even if you don't read, you need to pick up this masterpiece and read it ASAP!!

P.S. I can't wait for the movie. Hopefully it doesn't disappoint.
