10 Weeks | 10 Books
WEEK 1: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
This is an unapologetic account of two teenaged Cancer Kids who become tragically star-crossed lovers. Meet Hazel Grace – with terminal lung cancer and an uncanny resemblance to Natalie Portman in V for Vendetta, she totes along an oxygen tank everywhere she goes. Enter Augustus Waters – charming bone cancer survivor and amputee who fears oblivion. When Hazel and Augustus meet, neither has any idea of the journey they are about to embark on. It’s a journey through illness, literature, loss, love, and finding peace with your life, no matter how long it is or where it takes you.
Watch next week for a spotlight on The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily Danforth!
