This novel has left me speechless. I have never read a more inspiring or heartbreakingly realistic novel in my life. This book shows the world through the eyes of a sixteen year old cancer patient, and yet it shows that no matter what happens in this world, there is always something good to look for. Hazel Grace Lancaster, the main character, shows through her relationship with her family and her new found friend Augustus that not everything is all bad and that even if you don’t have much time left, you can still try to live life to the fullest.
I believe that even though this novel is about a morbid and depressing topic, its message is optimistic and is a book that should be read by everyone at some point in their lives.
