Read from December 22nd - 23rd, 2014.
But this review isn't about The Fault in Our Stars, so I'll move on. Zac and Mia focuses on Zac and Mia, of course, as they deal with cancer and its aftermath. I liked Zac more than Mia all the way through the book. But after thinking about the characters for a while after finishing the novel, I realized that the author did a really good job with writing them. Mia may have seemed unlikeable to me at first, and she may have done things that I couldn't understand, but she was dealing with a life-changing and deadly disease. Everyone deals with pain and grief in their own ways, and I liked that the author gave Zac and Mia such different personalities, and showed just how differently people react to the same problems.
I thought the novel was well-written and I enjoyed the character development - Zac's mostly. Though not a pleasant topic, the author still did a good job of including small bits of humor, which kept the book from getting too dark.
