The Fault in Our Stars is a great book that both boys and girls in high school or older would enjoy. I would highly recommend this book because it is inspirational, relatable, and has a great plot. The Fault in Our Stars is a very inspirational book. It is about a girl, Hazel, who battles cancer and struggles to interact with people besides her parents. Cancer is a major problem Hazel struggles with, and causes many set backs for Hazel, but she also has the struggles of being a teenager, and it really inspires me to see how she overcomes everything life throws at her no matter how hard it is for her to get through it. Although Hazel has cancer, and she cannot breathe with out her oxygen tank and tubes in her nose, she learns to make friends, fall in love, and make her dreams come true.
The Fault in Our Stars is a very relatable book. Even though I do not have cancer, or any type of sickness, I feel like I can easily relate to Hazel. She is my age, and fights with her parents. She falls in love and gets her heart broken. She makes friends and loses friends. Hazel is a very relatable character for all of those reasons. Cancer is a bottom line, and causes many set backs for Hazel, but she also has the struggles of being a teenager. The book is written in first person, which I really liked, because you can experience the way Hazel feels, and you can easily pretend you are Hazel.
Last, The Fault in Our Stars has a great plot. The book is full of of unexpected twists, and a story changing ending you will never expect. As I read the book, I never wanted to put it down. The book was not necessarily short, but the plot was so intense that even though it had a few hundred pages, I read it quickly. – Gabby Donato, 9th Grade
