Hazel has terminal cancer. Augustus is in remission. They meet at a cancer support group and even though Hazel is determined to keep close to home and her family to minimize the damage when she dies, she can't keep away from Augustus.This was a very good story. Once again, I'm not usually one to pick up a book about cancer, but I'd read too many good things about this. The story and characters were solid and I found myself laughing a lot! For a story that seemed to be a very honest story about cancer and it's effects, things seemed to wrap up a little too nicely for me (I'm sure there are some out there who will disagree with me there) and there were a few parts that dragged a bit. Still, this was a great book. I think teenagers and adults will both like it and there is something to take away from the story for everyone - even if they haven't had any similar experiences or close experiences with cancer.
