Two “Big C’s”: Cancer and Communes. Great Summer Reading. I’m Not Kidding.

the fault in our stars

I’m reading this great book. It’s so hilarious that I’m literally snorting with laughter.
What’s it about?
Cancer.
(long, uncomfortable silence)
Really.

It’s also touching, and tragic, so keep the tissues handy.
I’m talking about The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. It's about two teens dealing with various aspects of cancer. As with most of his books, I’m totally smitten. The banter between characters is very highbrow. I don’t know any teenagers who really talk like Green’s characters, but he’s a skilled writer and his characters are enchanting and well-developed. This is a must-read for adults and older teens.
