book review

I loved the book. It was a wonderful book. I could really imagine what was happening in the book. The feel of Hazel having cancer just makes me sad and it is heart breaking thinking of people maybe dying is not the best thought. There is nothing he could change to make the book better. It is an amazing book.

the girl who inspired the book

the book was inspired by Esther Earl. A girl who has cancer and has to pull around an oxygen tank just like how Hazel does.
