A world of stars that have cancer..
by Makayla Anderson
The main character is Hazel. Hazel has thyroid cancer and she has to pull around an oxygen tank because the thyroid cancer attacked her lungs. Another character is Augustus and he has a little touch of osteosarcoma a year and a half before. His leg had to be amputated. The next character is Hazel’s Mom. The last character is Patrick and he is the leader of the support group.
The book is about a girl who has thyroid cancer and goes to a support group to talk about it and she makes a lot of new friends. It starts out talking about how if you read a book, website, or whatever it talks about the side effects of cancer and there is always depression listed and depression is a side effect of dying. Also how almost everything is a side effect of dying. Her mom decided she needed treatment and so her mom took her see her regular doctor Jim. Also it talked about she has to have an oxygen tank with her.
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.
