The Fault in Our Stars

Title : The Fault in Our Stars
Author : John Green
Rating : 5 Stars

Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 13, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs... for now.

Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too; post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault.

Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind

I can't share the whole thing that ive felt when i read it, because at one point there I was, laughing a lot and then I cried. A lot! I didn't know any condign word to describe it but yeah, that's what i felt.

It was great story and it'll moved the hearts of people who haven't yet felt some kind of love that could surpass between the stars. It shows bravery, honesty, acceptance, anger, and happiness.

There was this kind of feeling that I want cancer to disappear on this world. After that, there are these fictional characters who already accepted their fates and I felt that some things are there for us to realize our life is what we really have.

John Green definitely made a masterpiece on this novel! I'm very happy he created that kind of story.
A very heart-warming and funny one. I can't explain much more on this, but I cried a lot. I just wished that somehow , the world is a wish-granting factory.
