“Some infinitives are bigger than other infinitives,” a quote written in the novel, Fault In Our Stars by John Green.

The Fault In Our Stars is narrated by a sixteen-year-old cancer patient, named Hazel. Hazel has a rare type of Thyroid cancer, which slowly spread into a long-settled satellite colony in her lungs.

Hazel attends a support group every month, which isn’t much fun, until one day, her blind cancer buddy brings an old friend to the group, Augustus Walters.  Augustus and Hazel learn through the power of family, friends, and the awfulness of cancer that love is strong. Throughout the book, Hazel and Augustus both converse over the book, An Imperial Affliction by Peter Van Houten. The book showcases the truth and reality of a cancer victim and relates to both Hazel and Augustus. The two travel far and wide just to meet the author of this book, and experience something completely different than they were hoping. When they end up back in the states, something terrible went wrong and their lives will never be the same.

The Fault In Our Stars, was an incredible novel that inspires teens to be grateful for life and love the life that you live. Hazel’s placement in this story is to show us that cancer can not take over your life. Death is a side effect of dying, but people can have dreams and achieve them. Augustus’s placement in this novel is to tell us that nothing is impossible. Even though cancer has changed your life, things can still take a turn for the best. Green shows us two teenagers loving each other through the most humiliating physical and emotional tragedies. Love can conquer all.

The Fault In Our Stars, is a number one New York Time Bestseller, number- one Wall Street Journal Bestseller, and a USA TODAY Bestseller. “Green writes books for young adults, but his voice is so compulsively readable that it defies categorization. He writes for youth, rather than to them, and the difference is palpable… You will be thankful for the little infinity you spend inside this book,” according to a review by NPR.org.

The Fault In Our Stars made me equally happy and sad because it was so well written and beautiful with a moving story line, it made me fall in love with the characters, their thoughts, and their words. Taking us through the sad, slow, and painful ways of a cancer patients life, as a normal teenager I could never imagine,” Morgan Johnston, sophomore, comments.

Our Rating: 9/10
