Have the Tissues Ready!
I watched the book-turned-movie, THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, with my daughter this weekend. This is a very "tween" movie. It is a little more mature than what my ten-year-old has seen. I think she thought the focus on romance was gross, but she thought story was good. The story centers around two terminally ill teens. A big part of the story is that they become obsessed with a book. Their persistence in trying to meet the book's author takes them on a journey to beautiful Amsterdam. To me, this trip was the highlight of the film. Their blissful vacation ends on a very bittersweet note. THE FAULT IN OUR STARS is filled with both happiness and sadness. In the end, you will be crying!
