TFIOS is about 15 year old, cancer-fighting Hazel Grace Lancaster who meets Augustus Waters at a cancer support group. Little does she know that their union would change her life forever. I enjoyed reading TFIOS, especially since it was the first book by John Green that I’ve read. His writing style is different from other books I’ve read because it’s more casual. However, I only gave it 4 stars because I noticed that almost all of Green’s characters seemed too alike – they were very witty.

I recommend this book for all ages. Hazel is going through a tough time with cancer. Her mom makes her join a support group to help her. They discuss their cancer, what type they have, their names and ages, and how they’re feeling. She hates it until her friend Izac brings his friend, Augustus. Soon Hazel and him fall in love until Augustus tells Hazel the bad news. It will leave a dent in Hazel’s heart.

I loved this book. It had an amazing story and it really touched my heart. A description of the book would be a girl named Hazel Grace falls in love with a boy named Augustus, and during their story something very tragic happens. Actually more than one tragic thing. 

Review #4
* * * Stars (Pretty good)
Hazel Grace has a cancerous tumor growing inside her body. Despite the medication she is on to try and shrink the tumor, there is no guarantee how much longer she will live. When Hazel meets Augustus Waters at her cancer support group her life gets flipped upside-down. I liked this book, but I thought the plot wasn’t very creative. It was your typical love story and I didn’t like it that much.

Despite Hazel’s tumor-shrinking miracle, she is still found to be terminal. However, she meets a strange boy named Augustus at the Cancer Kids support group. Both open each other’s worlds in ways they never thought were possible. I really enjoyed the romance between the characters, no matter how sad it was. For middle and high school teens + adults.

Hazel Grace Lancaster has cancer. Due to her cancer, she has to use an oxygen tank to breathe properly. The book begins with Hazel attending a cancer support group – reluctantly – due to her mother’s forcing her to. Hazel’s life is written in stone, as she is closer to death than she can believe due to her cancer. Luckily, she had a “cancer-shrinking” medical miracle that has bought her a few years. At the support group she meets a guy named Augustus Waters. But what she was unaware of was what was in store for her after meeting Augustus.


I found that the storyline was easy to follow and interesting along the way. I did find Hazel and Augustus to be boring teenagers, though. Overall, this book was great aside from the characters!


For middle and high school teens + adults.
