My 10 yr old reviews ‘The Fault in Our Stars’

All I have to say is: Oh my God, how could anyone read this spellbinding book and not like it?


The protagonist in the story, Hazel Grace Lancaster, is smart and outgoing but suffers from lung cancer. No one can read this book without bursting in to tears, and that’s good. If you have read this book and, like all humans, have cried, you felt a connection to the characters in John Green’s story.

This is probably my favorite book and movie ever, because the heroine, Hazel Grace, has to deal with so much when she’s only 17. Augustus Waters, Hazel’s boyfriend, always tells her she’s beautiful. That’s not all he tells her. He always says how amazing she is and how smart she is, because he knows she is so much more than another pretty face. I think this book is amazing and like my mom always does, I rate it HHH. I thought about what i was going to rate this, and it took some time to decide, but it really deserves a triple H. I have been wondering why I love this book so much and I have come up with a couple of reasons.

  1. It makes you feel as if you are there and you’re watching it all happen.
  2. It is written beautifully and has cliff hangers. I guarantee you’ll never get bored once in this book.

I was so connected to Hazel Grace, I felt like she was my sister, that I already knew everything about her before I met her.

If you have not read this enchanting book read it now, and you wont have any regrets. Some helpful advice: bring tissues when you do, trust me you’ll need them.

  1. This comment isn’t really related to the fault in our stars, but a YouTube video/ad recently came out and I think you should see it. It’s called Always #LikeAGirl.

  2. Thanks for this review – I’ve been debating reading the book (I haven’t seen the film yet) but wasn’t sure. I think that, based on this review, it is something I’d love. The review is clear and beautifully written – it really inspired me to read…. thanks!

    • Hi Jill,

      I agree the review makes me want to read it. I am a sucker for great characters. I have not read it because I knew it was about two kids with cancer who fall in love and it sounded so sad. But my sister read it and told me it was great and that my daughter would love it. Then she went to camp and a couple of her friends had read it and loved it and the movie was out, so I got it for her and she devoured it. Let me know what you think.
