The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Hazel, a seventeen year old girl, lives life to the fullest, except for the fact that she has lung cancer. Hazel's mom sends her to support group every week. There, Hazel befriends Isaac, a soon to be blind  boy. One day at support group, Hazel meets a tall, mahogany haired boy named Augustus Waters. He is Isaac's friend, who joined the group to support Isaac. Hazel and Augustus quickly become friends.
With time, Augustus and Hazel became more than friends... yes, they start dating. 

After introducing Augustus to her favorite book An Imperial Affliction, Augustus surprises Hazel by taking her to meet the author. Of course, meeting your hero is not always what it lives up to be. Hazel and Augustus have a very disappointing experience with meeting the author.

Hazel starts second guessing her relationship with Augustus. She knows she isn't getting better quickly and she doesn't want to put Augustus in a difficult position of being forced to stay with her because of the cancer. 

After a few days of finding out some terrible news, Augustus tells Hazel that his caner has come back. Hazel is extremely understanding and supportive when she finds out this news. As Hazel is coping with her cancer, Augustus is only getting worse.

What was the disappointing experience with Hazel's hero, the author? DoAugustus and Hazel get better from their cancer? Most importantly, do Hazel and Augustus stand by each other no matter what?
Read The Fault in Our Stars  to find out.

I absolutely loved this book. In fact, I couldn't put it down, I read the entire book in ONE day! I recommend this book to lovers of romance. Though normally I don't cry while reading books, for the exception of when Dobby died in Harry Potter, this book brought me to tears. 

Favorite quote: Augustus Waters "It's a metaphor see: you put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don't give it the power to do it's killing." 

Well I must go read another book,
