The Fault In Our Stars - John Green

My second 5* book of the year was The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

I finished this book and just sat and cried for about 20 minutes. Ugly cried. J looked at me like I was nuts. (You may want to read this book in private.)

I REFUSE to spoil this book for anyone. I would have been devastated had it been spoiled for me. Due to that I am going to copy and paste the description from goodreads.

Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 12, 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.

Even with just C&Ping here I'm still afraid of giving too much away. This book wrecked me, in the best way possible. It was amazing. Everything about this book took my breath away.

Read it.

Trust me.
