    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?

    I loved how it seemed so...honest. I knew a boy who died of cancer when he was in either 5th or 6th grade, and this novel showed me a side of "cancer kids" that I'd never seen before. I laughed, and I (nearly) cried, which is still huge for me, a book has never done that before. I loved everything about this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hazel, definitely, but I loved Augustus as well. I really related to Hazel, despite never having cancer, although I knew two people with it, a friend of my cousin and my aunt Beverly. Hazel is so sarcastic and detached at first, but she falls madly in love with Augustus, which makes her even more likable to me. When she was talking about how she doesn't Augustus to "Monica" her, but she doesn't want to "Isaac" him, it blew my mind; I had thought almost the exact same thing, though not in the same way. I loved both Hazel and Augustus equally.


    What does Kate Rudd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice really brought the characters to life. There's nothing worse than listening to an audiobook with a bad narrator, it really ruins it. Kate Rudd's narration was perfect.


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

    Yes. I laughed, cried, and generally reacted emotionally to this book. I'm not a very emotional person, so any book that can do that is a big deal.


    Any additional comments?

    READ THIS BOOK! I regret not reading this book for so long.
