There is no "fault" in "The fault In Our Stars"

The Fault In Our Stars - Boy meets girl (who happens to have a terminal illness) and girl is charmed by the boy (as is the readers - yes the boy has a secret that we will not share in this blog for those of you who have not read the book yet).  This book is not really a love story made for the movies but is a realistic look at how life can continue to throw you curve balls that you do not expect.  This book is a must read and when you start it, do not expect to want to put it down any time soon.

All Good Children - Drugging children to ensure calmness and tranquility.  This book has the potential to elicit much conversation as to when a society goes too far to reach the goal of conformity.




Although our group generally liked both books it was unanimous that The Fault In Our Stars is moving on to battle another book.
