I think this is a 5 star book, I really do. It was fabulous, and I think-overall-had a good message. I'm giving it 3 stars because I never felt connected to the characters 100%, and its hard to fall in love with a book when you don't.The writing was brilliant though, I really like his style. I love how he is so consistent with the way his characters think. Like Pudge always thinking of how many "layers" are between him and whatever character he is with at the time. Also, I laughed outloud when he got hit with the basketball and said "I am concussed."Can't wait to read more of John Green!
