Hazel Grace Lancaster has been living with cancer since she was 13. A medicine that has previously helped prevent further tumor growth, has begun to loose its effect. She has to have a constant supply of oxygen due to the damage done to her lungs. She has begun to exhibit symptoms of depression and her doctors and parents suggest a support group. This group is where she meets her soul mate.
This book is depressing yet romantic. The relationship between Hazel and Augustus is adorable and their love is evident throughout the story. I would recommend reading this book before watching the movie. The movie changes what happens in the story. I would not recommend this book to those who are sensitive to topics of cancer. The romance greatly outweighed the sadness of this story which is why I enjoyed it so much. If you are not sensitive to the topics I previously listed, this book is an excellent read.
