Paperback and e-book, 1, 124 pages

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," 

My thoughts on The Fault in Our Pants ~~ 

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started The Fault in Our Pants. I had read The Fault in Our Stars and to be completely honest, I liked it but was not blown away by it as others had seemed to be. And a parody? Okay, so the author is poking fun at the book, I get that. But when I first started reading, I found myself not enjoying it and I honestly thought I would stop reading it.

I picked it up later in the day to continue reading and I am not sure what changed for me, maybe I became uncrabby at that point or took my happy pills. I don't know, but I started seeing the similarities and differences between the two books and really got into it. I ended up thoroughly enjoying the book and thought it was a hoot. You, as the reader, would not 'get' all the little jokes and tangents that the author takes without first reading the original book but if you did, and are comparing the two, it becomes absurdly funny!

I also noted that Steve has written a parody of Gone Girl, which is another very popular book, one that I read and really enjoyed. I am pretty sure I am going to have to check that one out too, now that I 'get' Steve's sense of humor.
