Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Date Started: Oct 16
Date Finished: Oct 29
How did I choose this book? I chose this book because it was a book that I read before and I chose to read it again considering that it has a very sincere meaning.
Summary and all the information in the comments.

Aliezah :) Summary: This book talks about a mom who thought her daughter named Hazel was depressed. Hazel‘s mom thought that by putting Hazel in a support group, it would help her get better. After a few classes of support groups, she met this person named Augustus Waters and they hung out until they became close. Augustus had osteosarcoma while Hazel had thyroid cancer. (edited) 1d
Aliezah :) Who is the protagonist: The main protagonist is Hazel Lancaster.
What was her problem: She was suffering from a terminal form of thyroid cancer.
How was the problem solved: The problem was never fully solved but Augustus died happy considering he loved Hazel until his very last breath. Hazel learned a lot through his death but overall, she matured in general.

My current read for my library book club, but wanted to say sorry for the flood. I've been behind on my posts and trying to catch up.

Nearly three months ago I started learning Dutch on a whim. I‘m getting more into it as time passes. Do you know any books set in The Netherlands? I‘d prefer modern day, but historical fiction could also work.

Still working out how I felt about this one. I wanted a good cry, and it definitely delivered, so there's that.

This book just wasn't for me. I at least finished this one, which I can't say the same for the author's effort Eat, Pray, Love. Gilbert is perhaps just not an author whose works I enjoy. I didn't enjoy this, but since I was able to finish it, I give 2 stars. Into the donation pile it goes.
