Again, like most others, I was a sobbing snotty mess pretty much the entire novel. As a parent reader, I think it was even 25x worse. I felt for both the sick children and the sick children's parents. I could imagine both being sick myself, and then I imagined (which is even worse) being the parent of a kid with a terminal disease. The feeling of hopefulness and helplessness consumed me the entire novel.
This is obviously my favorite of the John Green books I have enjoyed so far which includes The Abundance of Katherine's. So far I have really considered John Green's books a little over-rated (don't kill me!) but have always loved him as a youtuber. This book really changed that for me, the amount of serious plot development I usually find lacking was front and center in this novel and I loved it.
Over all, this book was an emotional roller coaster. I literally laughed and cried the entire novel. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to feel the feels.
