Summary: 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. (Source of Summary and Book Cover: Goodreads)

Review: After the first few sentences, I immediately liked Hazel, our narrator. Her voice was perfect for telling this story, she sounded like a real (mature) teen to me. This book is beautifully written and has a flow to it that just tugs you along.

All of the characters in this book are likeable and realistic. While this is an emotional story that many people warned would make it cry, it didn’t make me cry. I felt bad for the characters and empathized with them, but never really felt that teary tug. I had a similar feeling when reading Jodi Picoult’s My Sister’s Keeper.

There is a strong message in this story about love and perseverance that really holds the story together and makes it worth reading. I enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it.
