The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is a book about two teenagers, Hazel and Gus, who meet at a cancer support group. Hazel has thyroid cancer that has spread to her lungs, while Gus has lost a leg to osteosarcoma. They fall in love and embark on a journey to Amsterdam to meet their favorite author. 

The book is a real tear-jerker that deals with some heavy themes, like love, life, death, and the meaning of existence. Hazel and Gus are both witty and charming, and they have this really beautiful relationship that is complicated by their illnesses. Throughout the book, they face a lot of struggles, like coming to terms with their own mortality and the impact their illnesses have on their families. But they also find hope and joy in their friendship with each other, as well as with their other friends who are also dealing with cancer. 

The Fault in Our Stars is a book that really captures the emotional journey of living with a terminal illness. It's a reminder that even in the darkest of times, love and friendship can bring light and hope. Personally I would give this book 4/5 stars.
