    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'm not sure how this book has so many great reviews. The dialogue between the two teenaged protagonists approached "Juno"-levels of annoyance and the book isn't particularly well written. This book is so inexpertly written, that I half expected that a teenager actually wrote it.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Absolutely not.


    Any additional comments?

    Seriously, save your credit. This is a young adult novel that I wouldn't even recommend to any self-respecting young adult reader.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If the friend wanted to get into Sci-Fi for the first time and hadn't read The Hunger Games, yes. This is clearly derivative of The Hunger Games, but it does have some differences. I love Sci-Fi and I also really liked The Hunger Games (although I recognize the books faults). I consider this book 'Sci-Fi with training wheels.'
