Personal Interests

-The Fault in our Stars (movie)

        The Fault in our Stars is an amazing movie that will take you on an emotional roller coaster like no other. Hazel Grace Lancaster is a 16 year old who has been battling cancer her whole life. Her and her family don’t know how long she has to live, so everyday’s a blessing. Her parents really want her to start living a happier life, and believe Hazel attending a support group is the place to start. Although reluctant, Hazel goes to make her mother happy. While there, she falls in love with a witty, charming boy, named Augustus Waters, who was diagnosed with a rare type of bone cancer, and recently got the all clear. Hazel introduces him to her favorite book, An Imperial of Affliction, and he instantly falls in love with it as much as she did. They end up traveling to Amsterdam in hopes of meeting Peter Van Houten, the author. Yet, eventually Augustus breaks awful news to his beloved Hazel Grace, and both of their worlds come crashing down around them. This is an outstanding movie, and I recommend it to all our blog readers! (:
