John Green-The Fault In Our Stars: 8/10

Initially I was somewhat put off by the entirely-too-erudite-for-teens-to-be-speaking dialogue, but it gives way to a nicely underplayed story that refuses to give into maudlin sentimentality. Would that the YA section of the bookstore was papered with John Green copycats instead of Twilight copycats.
