Review: The Fault in Our Stars

Title: The Fault in Our Stars
Author: John Green
Blurb:

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 a 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. 
My Review:
In a way I put off reading this book as I was scared; scared that I was going to turn into a complete blubbering wreck half way through reading it. I didn't, thankfully, though I did well up towards the end. I won't reveal the plot as I don't want to spoil the story. 
Hazel is 16 and hates going to a support group. At support group she meets Augustus Waters. He is dashing, witty and charming. Augustus had a rare form of bone cancer called osteosarcoma, but has had the all clear for a several months.
Hazel and Augustus bond immediately and they have a special connection together. During the course of the book they have a roller coaster journey; with highs and lows. As Hazel and Augustus travel to Amsterdam in search of Peter Van Houten, the author of Hazel's favourite book, An Imperial Affliction. While they are in Amsterdam Augustus breaks some heartbreaking news to Hazel. 
Expect to feel a range of emotions throughout reading this book - I certainly did. It was one of those that is so hard to describe. I just highly recommend reading this book. It is a beautiful piece of literature.
