I was so excited when I found out the library had gotten this book. I have heard a lot of good things about it since it came out. This novel is about a sixteen year old girl named Hazel who is dying of cancer. At the support group her mother makes her attend because she seems to be depressed (a side effect of dying) she meets a cute boy named Augustus Waters. He invites her to see a movie with him, and the rest is basically obvious. Except, of course, that Hazel is dying of cancer, and desperately wants to make him not like her so she won't hurt him when she dies. It was wonderful, I was crying so hard by the end, so it was exactly what I had hoped for.
This novel was like brownie pudding. Rich, fudge-y brownie layer at the top, and a pudding or half baked batter layer underneath. Yum! Like brownie pudding, this made me so emotional. If, however, you can not imagine yourself being moved to tears by the delicious decadence of this chocolate-y goodness, you probably would not like the book either.
For lame people who think inside the box this is probably about a 4.
