Goodreads synopsis: Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.
My thoughts: I really enjoyed this book. Some parts were predictable, but others were sweet and took me off guard. The author intertwined a lot of philosophizing about the meaning of life, which I appreciated. The book made me think differently about what it means to be ill and how that affects others’ impression of you, and it also gave me some food for thought about what it means to make a difference. I recommend it if you have a couple of free hours.
Quote to ponder:
“That’s why I like you. You are so busy being you that you have no idea how utterly unprecedented you are.”
