Hazel is 16 and living with cancer. She's finished her GED and is taking college classes, but her main social interactions are her parents and a cancer survivors group.
And that's where she meets Augustus. A boy she shares a book that means more to her than anything else in the world.
This book was amazing. I'd originally given it five stars, but on reflection reduced it to four because the dialogue was just a little too unbelievable. It doesn't really detract from the story, but all the characters are just a little *too* witty and able to reference obscure tangents to connect to their ideas.
It works, but wouldn't in real life unless everyone you know majored in literature and philosophy at the same time.
I would recommend this book though. It will hold your interest the whole way through.
