The Fault in Our Stars by, John Green

Publishing House: Dutton Books
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.

So this book… before I get into the reasons that I have rated this book I just want to say that I read this book in two days. The only reason it took me that long was because I started back to school.

Okay so if you read the summary of this book you know that our wonderful protagonist, Hazel Grace, is sick. Hazel has cancer, this is one of the reasons for the PG-13 rating. Cancer is not a light and fluffy subject and John Green does a very well about addressing death and mortality.

As in most cases when cancer is involved there is death. This is also handled in an almost beautiful way.

 Another reason for this rating is that there is a sex moment. There is no description of the act itself just small glimpses before and after.

Finally for the cussing in the book, there is very little that I remember reading. They use A and JA.

So there you go! That is my review of The Fault in Our Stars.
