I'd heard that John Green was a great young adult fiction writer,
so I'd planned on picking up one of his books.
It made sense to start with the most recent one that came out.
However, when I read the summary... I wasn't so sure this was a good idea.
The Fault in Our Stars
I wasn't sure I wanted to read about terminally ill teenagers.
I tend to avoid heartbreaking stories, so that, well, I don't have my heart broken.
But, I read this, and I'm glad I did.
It was a great story.
The main character, Hazel, has cancer and no real hope of much of a future...
and then she meets a new boy in the cancer support group who changes her life.
There's a quest.
There's young love.
It was a wonderful read.
