The Fault in Our Stars

Just finished reading The Fault in Our Stars, and I have to say it is difficult to watch the Stanley Cup Finals with tears in your eyes.  Thank you very much, John Green, for writing such a compelling book, that I couldn't put it down, even to watch the Rangers battle for their lives!
Thankfully, my attention was divided between the book and the hockey game, otherwise I think it would have been even more upsetting.  While many of my students and my own children's friends have read and loved the book, I think it is probably emotionally easier for 'tweens or teens to read this book, than it is for a parent.  For that reason, although it is beautifully written, I'm not sure I would recommend it for parents to read.  Too disturbing.

Happy reading,
