March 16-22 marks Sunshine Week, a nationwide discussion about the importance of access to public information and what it means for you and your community.

In honor of the upcoming movie for this book, I am doing a review on The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. This book delves into the story of teen cancer patient, Hazel. She regularly attends Cancer Kid Support Group. During one meeting Augustus appears and changes the way Hazel is living her life. For some readers this book can be a bit of a hit or miss. I, for one, love the book and it had me in tears by the end. However it was a miss to some readers because the characters tend to make jokes about their disabilities and illnesses that might seem offensive to others. Overall the book kept a good balance of humor and seriousness. This book is quite interesting, therefore, as I would say with any movie adaptation, “Read the book first.” 8/10
