this book completes me.
I won’t lie to you and say that this story is all roses and posies – it is absolutely bitter-sweet. But after all, most great novels are. The quick sarcastic banter between the main characters in this book is a treasure. It reminds me a little teeny bit of Juno with a surlyish see-it-like-it-is female lead. Hazel Grace is an inspiration. Augustus is someone you never want to forget. This is a love story. And even with the seriousness of cancer running through the story, and the reality of loss, you can’t help but be swept up in young love, living life to the fullest and capturing those small moments that make our lives what they are, and what we’ll remember.
(p.s. there’s rumor that the movie is in the works – ah can’t wait!)
