Synopsis (from Goodreads): 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.
The story of Hazel and Augustus is so special it had me devouring this book in a day. Their story is more than the cancer that they suffer from, it is more than their battered and ravaged bodies. Their story really is the story of hope and optimism.
In the saddest moments John Green had us laughing, and in the darkest moment he had us hoping which is what is so special about this book. It was surprising in a good way and I would read it again in a heartbeat.
Life is precious and no one is guaranteed forever and the ones that truly live life are those that can make the moments last for eternity. I loved this book, plain and simple.
