The highly anticipated film adaptation of John Green's book "The Fault in Our Stars" is becoming wildly popular leaving everyone eager to have a copy in their bookshelf.

It's real.
“Nothing is sugar-coated,” in the words of Hazel Grace. John Green does a wonderful job of showing a very real side to illnesses, and also a very real side to teenagers in general. The book is from the point of view of Hazel, and throughout the entire story, I genuinely felt like it was her speaking out. This is not a true story, but it is inspired by a real girl named Esther Earl who lost her battle to cancer when she was sixteen. John wrote this book in her honor, and it just makes the book have so much more meaning. This novel really has a special message to any teenager struggling with their health and is an inspiration for them.

It's funny.

Amid all of the commotion of being sick teenagers, John gives each character such a great sense of humor. There are parts where I literally laughed out loud whilst reading! The relationship Hazel Grace and Augustus share is so adorable.

It's relatable.

No matter who reads this book, I think they relate with some character in some way. There are parts of this story that are extremely sad, and we see the two main characters go through the entire spectrum of emotions. I think this is why this book made me become so attached to each person. I really got to know them well page to page.

A glimpse of the romance and touching protagonists in the novel

“I'm in love with you," he said quietly.
"Augustus," I said.
"I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. "I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
