I’d heard a lot about this book from its many fans raving about it on the internet, so I finally decided to read it for myself. I thought it was probably overrated wouldn’t be as amazing as people said it was, but I was actually pleasantly surprised. The book follows the story of Hazel Grace, a girl with terminal cancer, and her relationship with Augustus Waters, a one-legged boy who previously battled with a cancer of his own. It sounds like a typical boy-meets-girl story but is actually a really interesting, deep and emotional read. It deals with a lot of interesting ideas and complex issues, and the two main characters are endearing but also realistic, because they are not perfect and faultless. I won’t say any more for fear of ruining it for you, but this book made me cry. I normally don’t ever read books which are focused around a romance story, so you can take it from me that this is one special book. Go out and give it a try, it might surprise you!
