How would you feel if one day you woke up and you couldn’t breathe? Would you feel scared? You certainly wouldn’t be happy, you wouldn’t just walk around telling everyone that your lung cancer is giving you joy. People always say not to be scared of anything. Can these people really be scared of nothing? This is all highly unlikely, Hazel Grace knows from experience that being afraid is just part of life. We have nothing to fear but fear itself, Oblivion is inevitable. This novel is a must read if you love, to read, stories about love and tragedies that no one expects, until they’re the victims.
