    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.

    What did you love best about The Fault in Our Stars?

    The courage of the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fault in Our Stars?

    Remembering her moms words on her deathbed.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    Augustus Waters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both. So true about the uncertainty of life. Characters in books do not always have a happy ending. Interesting that he finished the story of the hamster and left the fate of the other charcters to our imagination.

    This is the original study guide to the Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous. Filled with practical information for those first days of sober living, this little book offers newcomers advice about the program, how long it takes, and what to look for in a sponsor; provides in-depth discussions of each of the Twelve Steps and related character defects; poses common questions about AA and helping others, identifying where to find answers in the Big Book; and, features non-sexist language.

    Jenlynmo says: "Helps me understand addicts in my life."

    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Little Red Book?

    Timesaving.


    Any additional comments?

    Reader makes the material more interesting than the written book. I hear new things that I never noticed because I can replay the material.
