Review:

Reviews for "This Star Won't Go Out"

"Just so you can't say we didn't warn you, "This Star Won't Go Out" will make you sob (unless you don't have a soul). But it will also make you smile, as one of those rare books that will change the way you look at the world. The true story of Esther, a teen with cancer, this book is a compilation of her essays, short fiction, journal entries and family photos. You might not expect a 16-year-old with a terminal illness to be funny, but Esther is cleverly so while eschewing bitterness.

Author John Green got to know Esther after meeting her at a Harry Potter convention, and they formed a meaningful friendship. So meaningful, in fact, that he dedicated The Fault in Our Stars to her and wrote the foreword to this book. Just released, " This Star Won't Go Out" is one book that will stick with you long after you finish it."
