Falling Action
1. Hazel continues to read the same book over again, An Imperial Affliction.

2. Isaac, Augustus' best friend, tells Hazel that last time he talked to Augustus, Augustus mentioned writing a sequel to their favorite book.

3. Hazel goes to Augustus' funeral, and unexpectedly runs into Van Houten, the author of her favorite book.
Resolution
Hazel finds the letter Augustus wrote to Van Houten, and sees the letter is about her. Hazel is happy that she chose Augustus to be hurt by, like Augustus had said in the letter, "You do get to choose who you are hurt by. I like my choices, I hope she likes hers."
My Story is Non-Traditional.


My story is non-traditional because it never explained what happened to Hazel after she received the letter. Did she beat cancer? Did she ever find someone else? Did she ever write the sequel to her favorite book? So many questions have been unanswered.
Key passage
"Maybe okay will be our always?"


"Okay."
This passage means a lot to the book because they constantly say "Okay." to each other. Without the key passage, the story wouldn't make any sense. "Okay." means forever.
Recommendation
Critique:

The thing about this book is the only bad thing is also what makes it good. That, is the ending. The author writes in the voice of a teenager. It is written in first person, from Hazel 's point of view. I love this book because it doesn't have very much conflict. It does, though, have a jaw-dropping plot twist. The book has very many good things. I would write about how the ending is both good and bad, but you just have to read it yourself.
Recommendation:

I recommend this book to anyone who likes reading about complications. To someone who doesn't expect fairytale endings , and for someone who likes a great twist.

Summary and Author information
Hazel may be diagnosed, but she' s as ordinary as any other teenager. With few friends, she' s often at home reading her favorite book, "An Imperial Affliction" over and over again. After constant nagging, she finally agrees to her mom's suggestion of going to support group. There, she runs into the very optimistic Augustus Waters. Together, they' re genius. They think of things no one could even imagine. But, there's a shocking plot twist that keeps you wanting answers.
The author of my book is John Green. John Green writes for young adults, and is very good at it. He has twice been the finalist for "LA Times" book prize. Speaking in present time, John Green lives with his wife and son in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Hazel was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer since she was 13 years old. Hazel finished high school early and is now trying to reach her goal of getting a college education. Hazel does not have any siblings at all. Hazel 's birthday is on the 29th of September, and is the main character in the story. The book is written from her point of view.
Alternate Ending
If I could end the story differently, I would have Augustus live. Him and Hazel would both be sick, but they 'd have each other. Both of them know the pain. Augustus would have continued to try and please Hazel, and Hazel would continue to fall in love. Together, they would write a sequel to their favorite favorite book. They would live happily ever after, telling their kids stories of their teen years. I would pick a happy ending, because I hate being sad, and seeing other people sad.
The
End.
