Fault in Our Stars VS Where Things Come Back

I know this doesn’t happen often but surprisingly all four of us at ABM agreed that although both books were enjoyable to read, Fault in Our Stars was by far the better book overall. We all love some good smack but none going on here for this round! This book had everything – humor, relationships, reality, a bit of crazy and a lot of emotion! A few of us have also agreed that it could go all the way!! Emotionally gripping with believable characters – even the drunk author! I agree with everything Wendy posted in the previous round!! Although I wouldn’t recommend to all JH students I would have no problem sharing with mature HS students.  This is by far one of my favorite all time books! Keep it going!!  Team ABM – Tristin, Chris, Annabel, Donna
