Why we chose this book:
“A lot of my friends recommended me this book and I don’t regret reading it.”
“A friend of mine told me that she cried a lot when she read the end of the book and that she found it awesome. She also kept telling me to read it because she was sure that I was going to love it.”

What I enjoyed about the book is that “it was simple to read and very
humorous, deep and tragic at the same time. This book is full of surprises. Unexpected things happen without you suspecting just little bit of it. Even though the book is really good the end is quite tragic and
emotional !”

“It is my favorite book because it’s a hilarious and heart-breaking story at the same time. You feel the emotions of the principal character/narrator, Hazel Grace.”

We would recommend this book to readers who like romantic, tragic and philosophical stories, teenagers and young adult girls who like being touched when they read a book.

Caution:  emotional girls get your tissues out!

Level: There is a lot of vocabulary and it is philosophical. We don’t recommend this book for beginners.

Rate: 5/5
