WEEK 1: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Book cover of 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!
