The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in Our Stars


John Green’s book is just so good. What a love story. This was a wonderful story about 2 kindred spirits with a connection that astounds. I just loved every minute of it. From laughing out loud to falling asleep with tissues it was THE BEST!! 

Happy Reading!
