Teen SRC 2022 – The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green was a great and eye-opening book about cancer. It wasn’t the like the usual cancer book where the cancer patient is suffering, so they do a fundraiser to help others. Instead, it was about what true cancer is like and what cancer patients actually go through.

The main character, Hazel, has lung cancer and uses machines to help her breathe. She

This book deserves an 11/10.

Teen SRC 2021 – They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

“No matter how we choose to live, we both die at the end.” Take a moment to let that sink in. In They Both Die at the End, – an adventure fiction book written by Adam Silvera– two teenage boys named Mateo and Rufus receive an alert, telling them they would both be dead within the next twelve hours. The two boys meet and spend their last day on Earth creating memories with each other, visiting strange places, and eating at fancy restaurants. That was how they chose to live. But of course, it doesn’t matter, because They Both Die at the End.

I think that this book does the most fantastic job of making ordinary things seem magical. That’s the case for Mateo and Rufus, because they have to enjoy the everyday activities we take for granted before they’ll never be able to do them again. There are also quite a handful of scenes that have deep, meaningful quotes that make you stop and think.

Teen SRC 2018 – The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

The Fault in Our Stars is about two teenagers that fall in love after meeting at a cancer support group. Hazel Grace was diagnosed with lung cancer and Augustus Waters, a cancer survivor. They both fall in love and go on a mission in Amsterdam to find Peter Van Houten, author of their favourite book, An Imperial Affliction. The book was full of love, laughter, and tears.

I am not a huge fan of romance novels however I did manage to enjoy this book. The happiness that these two characters find within their sad tragedies is quite wonderful. This book was very emotional so keep that in mind before reading this book.
