Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.
I had been meaning to read this book for months I read the sample a while back and got sucked in straight away, but thought i would wait for the price to go down.
I really liked reading from Hazel's point of view because I got a glimpse into what it is like to have a terminal illness and a realistic perspective on the matter there was no sugar coating in this story it was very frank and very realistic. I liked that Hazel was down to earth and spoke and thought about her illness in a frank and honest way. It made me feel very thankful for my good health and the good health of my own child.
You would expect this book to be nothing but a tear jerker but it is far from it there is humor throughout the book that warmed my heart when I read it. I enjoyed the banter between Hazel and Augustus' the most, and also Isaac as well.
I found the whole read interesting, funny and sad. Anyone that reads this book will enjoy it and to me it was a special read that I will never forget.
Please read this book and enjoy. Let me know if you have seen the film and how you liked it?
