I've been hearing a lot about this John Green piece for a while and I've seen this book in bookstores where I usually hang around but never got to get one for myself.
It wasn't until I stumbled upon Read Philippines that I got interested into reading The Fault in our Stars. The overview kind of intrigued me into reading. Also, it's actually a July Challenge in RP where members are to post their thoughts and reviews on the book and there will be one lucky winner.
Here is the short summary:
"The story follows the main character, Hazel Grace Lancaster, as she battles cancer. Not only is Hazel trying to live the normal life of a 16-year-old girl, but she is also struggling with what it will be like for her parents after she dies. While Hazel attends a church support group for cancer survivors, she meets a boy that is one year older than her, Augustus Waters. While Augustus had a type of cancer that causes him to lose his leg and wear a prosthetic, it also has a survival rate that is much higher than Hazel's death sentence."
