The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Description:Despite the medical miracle that has bought her a few more years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, but when Augustus Waters suddenly appears at the Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be rewritten

My Review: As you already know if you follow this blog, John Green is one of my all-time favorite writers, and this is my favorite book he has written so far. I wanted to reread it, but I decided to try the audiobook version this time, and I'm so glad I did! Narrator Kate Rudd does an amazing job capturing Hazel's personality as well as depicting the other characters, and I can see why the audiobook won the 2013 Odyssey Award for Excellence in Audiobook Production. Despite the seemingly sad subject matter (teens with terminal cancer), this is ultimately a hopeful story with plenty of humor and romance mixed in to balance out the sad parts. It took me on an emotional rollercoaster, but I loved every minute of it! It's also really cool to read a book set mainly in Indianapolis for a change since I recognize all the places mentioned. I highly recommend this book for both teens and adults, especially the wonderful audiobook edition.
