John Green’s ​The Fault in Our Stars​ is a young adult romance novel based around the love story of two teenagers with cancer. Hazel Grace Lancaster, a sixteen-year-old with stage IV thyroid cancer, is forced to attend a cancer support group where she meets Augustus Waters. The two quickly grow close and fall in love amid their final adventures.

Green writes with such a meaningful eloquence that it’s difficult to feel disconnected from his characters. While the language and deeper meaning in this novel may be viewed as pretentious, I would argue it’s what makes the characterization of Hazel and Gus so powerful. This book is one of my favorites because it is painfully honest
