The Fault in Our Stars (Thorndike Literacy Bridge) (Large Print)by John Green
John Green has so cleanly sidestepped anything precious, sentimental, and heart-warming in The Fault in Our Stars, it's a wonder he was even able to write about two teenagers diagnosed with cancer. These are some fertile fields for tweeness, indeed. Oh, but he can write — and wonderfully! His characters are so true to life, I can hardly think of them as characters. Hazel is terminal and Gus is in recovery when they meet at a cancer-survivors support group. They have much to say about death, illness, grief, survival, love, and time: "What a slut time is. She screws everybody." This is a smart, funny, extraordinary book, one that is monumentally profound. You will silently thank John Green over and over for sharing this amazing story.
Did you really think YA was all vamps and other fantastical, supernatural... stuff? Well, you'd be wrong. Very wrong. 'Cause John Green exists. And his book The Fault in Our Stars tackles the subject of teens and cancer. But it's not a "cancer story" in the sappy, Lifetime-movie sense. Sure, you'll cry, but you'll also laugh out loud, and it's all done with grace (Hazel Grace, that is). Not to mention, it's insanely quotable, so have a highlighter handy.
