As I was approaching the mall exit, this cute little girl with barretted braids appeared in front of me and said, “What’s that in your nose?”

“They’re called cannula,” I said. “These tubes give me oxygen, which helps me breathe.”

“Would they help me breathe, too?” she asked.

“I dunno, wanna try?”

“Nah,” she replied, “I don’t wanna look like a weirdo.”

“Wanna know a secret?” I asked.


I licked my finger and rubbed it on her arm. “I just gave you cancer,” I whispered.
heheheh. Oh, man.

First thing’s first: I’m severely immature for my age, and laugh at virtually anything. Please don’t hate me. This is in no way intended to make light of an emotional and heartbreaking situation or disease.

The Fault in Our Pants is obviously a parody of The Fault in Our Stars. It’s a very touchy subject for a real-life disease that tears families apart, and takes away lives way too soon. I have to be honest, I read it because I needed a light read after all the hardcore books I’ve been reading with epic plots, high fantasy type of stories. Comedians make fun of anything and everything, so something like this didn’t really surprise me, but you can’t please anyone, as some of the reviews warned people away because of the topic.

The writing was average, making a bland story that had its entertaining parts. I found myself chuckling or laughing outright at parts, but there were some “jokes” that were a bit too much and could hit a soft spot for some people.
Just as Anna is about to expose Veronica Roth for the talentless literary fraud she is, the book ends right in the middle of a
When I read this, I had to reread it three times to actually get it. At that point, I laughed. You’re an asshole, Mr. Lookner. Fuck you. Hahaha. Another good and memorable part worthy of being included in this review is the video game Isaac and Hazel played while he was blind. It was terrible in reality but hilarious at the same time. (Please, don’t hate me).

All in all, this book was entertaining for the most part, but something I wouldn’t read again. It’s best for a one-time read, in my opinion. After going through all the other stuff the author wrote, the next book by him that I will be reading is City of Boneheads (A City of Bones by Cassandra Clare Parody). I have to say I’m excited about that one, for sure.
