"There is one thing in this world shittier than biting it from cancer when you're sixteen, and that's having a kid who bites it from cancer." Hazel Grace Lancaster has cancer, along with the rest of her support group who are all in various stages. Then she meets Au(gus)tus, and it isn't quite love at first sight, but when two teenagers who have gone through more pain than any teenager should, it's a powerful kind of love. "I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once."

I've never read any other book by John Green, and I believe that's why I enjoyed The Fault in Our Stars. The characters are unique and funny, if not a bit over-the-top on some of their jokes. I added so many of the lines to my quote book (I'm a nerd), and I'll try not give too many more away by ending this review.

Read the book. Maybe you'll be like me, and think you're going to make it to the end without crying, but you will cry. And you will cry multiple times.
