The fault in our stars

This is a story of Hazel and Gus. Both teenage cancer victims (for lack of a better word) who find one another just a little too late. Although Gus' cancer has a high survival rate, he is not destined to be in that 80%. What they find, experience and ultimately lose makes for a heartbreaking and sorrowful tale. Yet it happens every day, every where. There are not many of us nowadays that are not touched by cancer, but somehow this novel casts an all too realistic eye on what cancer sufferers face - day to day and into their sometimes too short futures.

The real danger of cancer becoming so much a part of our life that we stop seeing what it does to lives, is tackled through books like this. They may not be the happiest of reads, but they are necessary.
