The fault in our stars

Recently, I read the fault in our stars by John Green. The novel tells the story of a teen named Hazel who is told that she only has a few years left to live because of the fact that she is diagnosed with terminal thyroid cancer. Not only is this book truly interesting and has an intriguing twist, it also allows readers to become aware of the huge impact that thyroid cancer and other life threatening conditions can have on people who are both directly and indirectly affected. The author, John Green was able to write a compelling book that cleverly intertwines teenage romance, the delicateness of life and pure emotion.

I haven't read it, but I have read Turtles All the Way Down. And I watched the TFIOS movie on the plane.

This book is amazing! John Green has also written some other books such as 'An Abundance Of Katherines' and one of my personal favourites 'Paper Towns'. He really has a unique style of writing.
