“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once”“My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.”“Okay? Maybe okay will be our always. Okay.”“Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.” “The marks humans leave are too often scars.”“You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, but you do have some say in who hurts you.”“The fault in our stars dear Brutus is not in our stars but in ourselves.”

A fantastic read that will make you laugh at times and cry a lot. I thoroughly enjoyed the quotes throughout the book and would not change a thing! The book is amazing and has changed my life significantly due to the way John Green has portrayed the book and how much life really is important.

This book was written for teens or advanced readers. Warning if you read this book: You will cry a lot. This book will change you and give you a better view/perspective on life. This book isn’t just a book.
