‘So good I think it should be compulsory reading for everyone!’
‘John Green brilliantly captures the voices of a young generation while instilling it with the wisdom of a life that has lived too much yet will never live enough.
Rather than depressing, the book is filled with dark humour and is written with a beautiful simplicity that draws the reader in so deeply that it’s not just the twist and turns but the gently bends and curves that you feel tugging at your emotions… No doubt in the end you will cry but you will also feel that you have discovered a little something about living’
