The book I am reading (4)

In fact, I have just finished it... it is called "Bajo la misma estrella" in Spanish, but the original one is "The fault in our stars", by John Green.



It is about Hazel, a 16-year-old girl who has lung cancer. She is a bit depressed, so her mum forces her to attend a support group. She doesn't want to go, but accepts... and there she met Augustus, a gorgeous boy who will change her life and her attitude towards cancer, love, death... Augustus had cancer too and he lost his right leg, so he knows perfectly about having cancer.

Is it a love story? Yes. Is it sad? Yes. And it is very hard sometimes... but it is also full of humour, laughs, emotion, tenderness and friendship. If you start reading, I am sure you will get caught...
