Goodreads: 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.
Ope’s Opinion: This book may be put in the young adult section, but it should be read by everyone. It is a well written, grab you book. John Green called into the book store One More Page. It was so interesting to hear him talk about the characters he brought to life in this book. In this book, Hazel’s voice was so strong. It was great to watch her take control and express herself in a forward, but not nasty way. The characters in this book are realistic, have honest emotions. They have flaws. I really did enjoy it.
