I know most of you will already have been told (or asked) repeatedly to read John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars but I’m here to ask you again.
It really is a remarkable book. Aimed at YA readers, I challenge any adult to read it with dry eyes.
Some of the characters have cancer but this is neither a ‘cancer book’ nor a book about cancer.
It’s been made into a film which is due for release in the UK in June and I have high hopes (the trailer also made me weepy), but I still think that if you can read the book before you see the film, you’ll be richer for it.
