*remembering my mom's living her daily life in spite of cancer
*falling in love with a favorite book & wishing to meet the author (Hazel & Augustus get that experience)
*my and other's discomfort with watching others with physical limitations
*a wonderful summer trip to Amsterdam
While most people depict cancer as an epic battle to win, Green's Hazel regularly reminded me that it's a fact of life. Hazel, along with her two closest friends Augustus and Issac live like any one else-with good & bad days, happiness, sadness, anger, hope, and acceptance of their final fate-earlier than most. It reminded me more of the good times with my late mom, rather than the pain of her final days.
