The Fault in Our Stars
By John Green
New York: Dutton Books, 2012.
213 pages Grades 7 and Up
This is the saddest book I have ever read! I would like to end right here– so I don’t have to continue to cry, but then perhaps someone would decide not to read this beautiful story. This is a story of two kids with terminal cancer who found in each other, a part themselves, which had been missing.
Truth be told, it might just be one of the greatest love stories of our time. I loved the humor, the truth, the detail and the heartbreak. Reminds me of Love Story (movie from 1970–this dates me I know!)
I understand this is being made into a movie—I will need two boxes of Kleenex for a movie!!
