The thing that I loved in The Fault In Our Stars is how it is no-graceful-nonsense-bullshit. Take Grace’s “my lungs suck at being lungs” or how frequently the remission group members talk about “cancer perks.” It is a punch of authenticity. The book’s whole energy keeps you on a roller coaster of laughter, sorrow, suffering, and philosophy: You feel Grace’s struggle to breathe, you swoon at Gus’ charm, and you cry with Hazel’s dad.
