Hazel Grace Lancaster is a sixteen-year-old teenager suffering from cancer. Her mother is worried that she’s depressed because all Hazel wants to do is sit around the house watching America’s Next Top Model and reading her favorite book, An Imperial Affliction. So when she meets Augustus Waters at support group, who previously had cancer as well, things start looking up, and she’s soon swept away by his wit, charm, and constant use of metaphors. But with their state of health, is it possible for the two young lovers to have a happily ever after?

It includes:

• Groping
• The subject of death and cancer
• Sexual and suggestive banter
• An un-descriptive sex scene between teens
• Profanity (one f-word)
• Blood and vomit
• References to cigarettes, but no actual smoking
• References to drinking and drug usage

The cancer theme in this book is realistic and heavy, but most of the time the writing is surprisingly light and funny due to clever conversations between characters. It still has many deeply affective scenes, though, and the famous tear-jerking ending is extremely emotional and heart-wrenching. Not recommended for teens under fourteen.
