My own tween daughter was fascinated with the book and insisted I read it and even wanted me to see the movie with her. I had to explain to her that as much as I loved the offer I could not handle the heartbreak of re-living this kind of tragedy. Selfish of me, I know.
I wonder, what is it that draws young girls to this movie. Does the "hot guy" (Ansel Elgort) and the love story just overpower the extreme sadness of the outcome? Is it just being naive to the reality of life. Really? I just could not handle paying good money to go cry.
I know eventually I will probably watch it on DVD or Netflix someday and cry my eyes out but for now, I am left bewildered at the tweens and teens in love with this movie.
I watch the trailer and I am very tempted to watch the movie. Have you seen "The Fault In Our Stars?
