February Love Reads: The Fault in Our Stars

3 Feb

A friend insisted I read a Young Adult (known in bookish circles as YA) novel entitled The Fault in Our Stars. It’s about kids with cancer, and I was imagining some Lurlene McDaniel book.

No, it is not. This book is about two kids with cancer who are smart, emotional creatures who have been living with cancer for half their lives or more. It’s a great love story and extremely moving. I can’t believe I tried to read it in a public place.

What do you think is the best love story you’ve seen represented in fiction or nonfiction? And why?

    Best love story- the boy and the giving tree (from Silverstein’s “The Giving Tree”). Totally realistic…people are usually selfish in relationships, and the tree gives without condition. True love.
