    "I saw this book and its series become my niece's first book-love, so I can vouch for it being a gateway drug to the world of reading. It is accessible, entertaining, and contains universal moral lessons, as do all good myths."

    "I love to read books for teens, especially quick reads. I found out about The Fault in Our Stars from a friend of mine. I heard of the movie, but not the book. It tells about the love story between Hazel and August, who are both cancer patients who meet in a support group. This book is really heartwarming, but very sad. Be warned. It's really a sweet book, though. Really recommended."
