Hazel is young high school girl who has survived cancer. When her doctor sends her to a support group, she meets Augustus who also has survived cancer. They fall in love and spend a lot of time together. Hazel is obsessed with a book called An Imperial Infliction which is also about cancer survivors.

This is a reminder to what goes into living with cancer. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an emotional read. Any student wants to read an emotional love story will enjoy this book but be ready to shed some tears!
