Be Well: Super Bookworm
The fault in our stars by John Green — Sixteen-year old cancer patient Hazel's constant companion is an oxygen mask and a tank that she drags behind her in a backpack. Her parents force her to attend a kids-with-cancer support group where she meets Gus, a seventeen-year old high school basketball player and amputee who's there to support mutual friend, Isaac, suffering from eye cancer. They bond over their experiences with coping with cancer and they agree to read each other's favorite novels. And there, their journey begins. The book, The Fault in our Stars, will be in theaters starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort in June.
