The Fault in Our Stars
A- Antagonist
The antagonist in this book would be the disease cancer. This is the factor that affected the most people's lives and was apparent throughout the book. Cancer destroyed many people's lives. A few prime examples are the main character, Hazel, who was diagnosed with terminal cancer, Peter Van Houten lost his daughter to her battle with cancer, Ahgustus Waters lost his leg and passed away from cancer, and Isaac was blinded from his battle with cancer.
B- Book Summary
The Fault in Our Stars is about a teenager named Hazel who is living with terminal cancer. after creating the unlikely relationship with young cancer survivor, Augustus Waters, Hazel finds herself in the midst of a whirlpool of events. They bond over their quirky sense of humor, their similar music taste, and their love for Hazel's favorite book, An Imperial Afliction. This particular book ends in a traumatic cliff hanger and Hazel has always wanted to know what happens next. Augustus decides to let Hazel use his "wish" that is granted to kids with cancer so they can live out their dream. The two teenagers fly to Amsterdam along with Hazel's mother to meat the author Peter Van Houten. The meeting did not go as plan, as Van Houten was an irrational drunkard, and they left with no answers. While the two were still in Amsterdam, Augustus reveals that he has had a relapse of cancer that will very soon take away his young life. In this tragic turn of events Hazel stays by Augustus's side to the very end. She learns what it is like to live on the other side of this monstrous disease as it took away someone from her that she loved very much.
C- Climax
I believe the climax of this book is when Augustus reveals to Hazel he has cancer again. While in the hotel room Augustus tells Hazel,
"So in for a PET scan," ... "and it lit up like a Christmas tress Hazel Grace. The lining of my chest, my left hip, my liver, everywhere."
This is the moment everything changes and Hazel realizes that he is going to die before her. She had gotten very used to the fact that Augustus would have to watch her die, but now it would be the other way around. This a huge turning point of events and is the most dramatic part of the book.
Hazel Grace Lancaster
The main Character, Hazel has stage 4 thyroid cancer. She has no illusions about her state of health. Hazel realizes that she is barely being kept alive by modern technology and that she will never be your average teenager. At the same time though she does not sulk around feeling sorry for herself. She tries to approach her illness with humor, like saying,

"I didn't tell him that the diagnosis came three months after I got my first period. Like: Congratulations! You're a woman. Now die." (Chapter 2, page 13)

She is different than most girls her age, not only because of the cancer, but from her view on life. She is not pessimistic but she does not sugar coat things either. She sees the world through the eyes of someone with nothing to loose. This makes her an original in a world of copies.

Augustus "Gus" Waters
Augustus is determined to leave a mark on everything and everyone that he touches. He wants people to remember him after he is gone; he wants to go down in the history books for living a life other people would envy. He wastes no time in getting to know Hazel. He sees something he wants and he goes after it. This is a kid who makes things happen. Even though he is a cunning, charming and pushy young man he also has a soft spot. He cares about the people around him and really makes a difference in all of their lives.

Augustus Waters
Hazel Lancaster
D- Description of Main Characters
Peter Van Houten

Former lifelong idol of Hazel's, this man is a genius when it comes to paper and pen. Van Houten wrote the one hit wonder book An Imperial Afliction. When Hazel and Augustus meet him in person, he's rude, inappropriate, and utterly drunk. He crushes Hazel's dreams and shows that the wonderful writer he is thought to be is not so wonderful in real life. His assistant Lidewij tells Hazel and Augustus on page 154, "'Circumstance has made him so cruel'". It is later found out that Van Houten's own daughter had passed away from cancer and that is what made him the way he was.
Isaac
Isaac is a true friend to both Augustus and Hazel. Isaac has various emotional breakdowns when dealing with the loss of his sight and over the break up with his long term girl friend, Monica. Despite those things though, Isaac is always there for Augustus, up to the very end, just like Augustus was there for him when he had the surgery that removes his eyes. He demonstrates what a true friend should be.
Mr. and Mrs. Lancaster
Hazel's parents love her very much. They are both very strong people as they know that one day they will loose their daughter in her battle with cancer. Hazel is their world; they love and care for her unconditionally.
E- Exposition
In the beginning of the book Hazel discusses her illness and all that she thinks about it. She explains how she goes to support group meetings because it makes her parents feel better. At what Hazel thought would be an average support group meeting she met Augustus. Sparks fly instantly after a heated stare down initiated by Augustus before the two even speak. Their friendship grows and the two become very close. Even though Hazel admires Augustus and finds herself drawn to him she does not want to break his heart when her cancer kills her.
G- Give an Alternate Ending
Instead of Gus dying I would have him miraculously be cured. Also I wish Hazel could be cured. Possibly a new treatment in cancer research will be discovered and it will save them both. I want this to happen because I am an old romantic who likes fairy tale endings. I love for the boy to get the girl and for them to both live out their lives together. I would want Augustus to be proud of himself and what he has accomplished in life. I dont want him to die believing
H-Heart to Heart
Dear Hazel,
I know you are scared about what you are feeling right now; I would be too. I feel that in this fickle world of triumphs and losses, every once and a while there comes a certain occasion where a leap of faith is necessary.
Not everyday does someone meet their soul mate, like you met Augustus. Although you are not sure of your feelings and are scared you may hurt him if you get too close I don't think that is for you to decide. I believe that fate has chosen this star crossed path for the two of you to take together.
This world is not perfect, and it doesn't promise us another day to live on it. I mean Hazel, you have been told that you will most definitely die in the near future, so what are you waiting for? When you're faced with the opportunity to experience love, the closest thing we have to magic, you should take it and run. You need to run and never look back.
You need to tell Gus how you feel about him. It is as simple as that. Gus has made it obvious to you, he has done his part and now it is your turn. Augustus knows how to deal with loss. If he did not want to be with you because of your illness he would not be so desperately striving for your attention. It is not like he does not know that he could lose you. Hazel, you are carrying around an oxygen tank, you're wearing tubes in your nose and you are barely getting from point a to point b. I am being harsh because you know it is true. I know that you would hate for me to sugar coat any of this.
Winston Churchill once said, “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
Stop being a pessimist and learn to be optimistic for just this once in your life. This relationship could turn out disastrous, that is true, but it could be wonderful. You don't want to skip out on love just because you are scared. When all comes to an end there is one thing you need to know. Life may not be about leaving a legacy behind or having a story others want to listen to, just make sure that it is a life you believed was worth living.
-Marianna Baker
J-Justify
I believe this book is a a must read for teenagers across the world. The life lessons learned in this book are phenomenal. Whether you are a child or an adult I recommend you read The Fault in Our Stars.
In society today many teenagers take what they have for granted. The main character Hazel Grace is battling terminal cancer. Every day she lives knowing that it could be her last. Someone knowing that today could be the day they died, they would most likely live an entirely different life. They would live without regret, and give every day their all.
Augustus, another important character was a star basketball player, he then was infected by cancer and eventually lost his leg. In the blink of an eye what is most important to us can be taken away.
We live in a world where people walk around like zombies, never opening their minds to the world around them. They are told what to do, so they do it. They are told what to say so they say it. They are told what to wear so they wear it. In his book, John Green stresses creativity, originality and a more open mind set.
Considering most of the population is not infected with cancer, reading this book really opens doors into a whole new world. You get to experience what the sickness was like through the eyes of a teenage girl. This book over all just teaches us to appreciate our lives. It is definitely worth the read.
1. Taking Monica and Isaac as an example, should love between a boyfriend and girlfriend be unconditional.
K- Know Your Book
2. Do you think that Monica was a bad person for breaking up with Isaac or if she was just scared?
3. Do you think that either Hazel or Augustus regret bring with the other?
4. Do you think that Hazels parents would have had more children if Hazel had not been sick? Or will they maybe have more later on?
5. Do you believe Isaac handled his illness well, or was he too emotional?
6. If neither Hazel nor Augustus died, do you think they would stay together or if they would just be a failed teenage relationship?
7. Was Peter Van Houten's rude actions towards Hazel and Augustus justified?
8. All Augustus ever wanted was to live a notorious life, why do you think he thought this. Why was he not happy with living under the radar.
10. If none of the characters in the book lives' had been effected by cancer, do you think that they would still be the same people they turned out to be?
L- Lesson Learned
I learned to never pass up on an opportunity to give or receive love. Love is a great gift that should not be taken advantage of or left to die. Although at a young age I am not in particularly looking for a deep romantic love like Hazel's and Augustus's, I believe you can experience love in other ways as well. I have learned it is better to show love to people than to ignore or to hate. You can show love by giving a child a hug, helping your parents or smiling at an old man. Love is a gift that keeps on giving and I have learned it is a valuable thing.
This is my 'alternate book cover' for The Fault in Our Stars. I used water colors and sharpies.

"Skinny Love" by Bon Iver
"Skinny Love"


Come on skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt, we were never here
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

Tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Right in this moment this order's tall

And I told you to be patient
And I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind

In the morning I'll be with you
But it will be a different kind
I'll be holding all the tickets
And you'll be owning all the fines

Come on skinny love, what happened here?
We suckled on the hope in lite brassieres
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Sullen load is full, so slow on the split

And I told you to be patient
And I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind

And now all your love is wasted
And then who the hell was I?
And I'm breaking at the britches
And at the end of all your lines

Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?
Ooh, ooh


I believe Hazel would have this song on her playlist because it is a song with a lot of depth and a complicated story. I think that it is about a complicated love that is slowly dying. In a way you could say this relates to her and Augustus because their love is complicated and will soon come to an end.
"After the Storm" by Mumford and Sons
"After The Storm"


And after the storm,
I run and run as the rains come
And I look up, I look up,
on my knees and out of luck,
I look up.

Night has always pushed up day
You must know life to see decay
But I won't rot, I won't rot
Not this mind and not this heart,
I won't rot.

And I took you by the hand
And we stood tall,
And remembered our own land,
What we lived for.

And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And now I cling to what I knew
I saw exactly what was true
But oh no more.
That's why I hold,
That's why I hold with all I have.
That's why I hold.

And I won't die alone and be left there.
Well I guess I'll just go home,
Oh God knows where.
Because death is just so full and man so small.
Well I'm scared of what's behind and what's before.

And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.
I believe that this song would be on Hazel's play list because first of all, I think she would love their music. Secondly, from personal experience I think this is a good song to listen to when in a hard place in life. It helps give you hope for tomorrow and motivates you to keep moving forward no matter how slow you are moving.
"Happy"

You make me happy, whether you know it or not
We should be happy, that's what I said from the start
I am so happy
Knowin' you are the one that I want for the rest of my days
For the rest of my days, yo all of my days

You're lookin' so cool, you're lookin' so fly
I cant deny that when I'm starin' you down and dead in the eye
I wanna try to be the person you want the person you need
It's hard to conceive that somebody like you could be with someone like me

I'm happy knowin' that you are mine
The grass is greener on the other side
The more I think the more I wish that we could lay here for hours and just reminisce
Ooh-ooh

You're lookin' so fresh, it's catchin' my eye
Why oh why did I not see this before
The girl I adore was right in front of me
And now I'll take a step back and look in your eye
And ask why it took so long to see we're meant to be

I'm happy knowin' that you are mine
The grass is greener on the other side
The more I think the more I wish that we could lay here for hours and just reminisce
On the good, the bad, the ugly
The smiles, the laughs, the funny
Oh, the things we put each other through
It's for you, for you, for you

You make me happy, whether you know it or not
We should be happy, that's what I said from the start
I am so happy
Knowin' you are the one that I want for the rest of my days
For the rest of my days

I'm happy knowin' that you are mine
The grass is greener on the other side
The more I think the more I wish that we could lay here for hours and just reminisce
Ooh-ooh
I think that 'Happy" would be on Hazels play list because it reminds me of her relationship with Augustus. Even though she tries to play it cool, I believe she is completely smitten over him. The two are just happy for each other and happy for the time they get to spend together.
"Emmylou" by Vance Joy
Oh if you’re losing sleep…
Oh if you’re losing sleep, scared of shadows.
See it’s just a chair, see the clothes hang there.
Oh don’t go losing sleep, scared of shadows.
Oh don’t feel bad.
Well I never have, since I got you, my Emmylou.
You wear those socks to bed, wear those socks to bed.
That’s what I do.
Oh c’mon sleepyhead, get yourself to bed.
Don’t go losin, oh, the nighttime.
Oh, don’t feel bad.
Well, I never have, since I got you, my Emmylou.
You are loved, you are loved, you are loved.
You are loved, you are loved, you are loved.
You are loved, you are loved, you are loved.
You are loved, you are loved, you are loved.
Oh now, don’t feel bad.
Well I never have.
Now that I’ve got you, my Emmylou.
No don’t feel bad.
Well I never have, now that I’ve got you, my Emmylou.
This song relates to Hazel and would be on her iPod because of the message it sends. The soothing song holds so much simplicity that it is almost a lullaby. The songs speaks of a timid girl who is scared by the world. She makes things look like monsters that are merely small obstacles. Then the persona says that he is here for her and that he loves her. He talks about how she has made his world better and he now wishes he could do the same for her. This reminds me of Hazel and Augustus. They made each other greater and helped each other through their problems.
"She (For Liz)" by Parachute
"She (For Liz)"


She has no problem with secrets
She knows how to keep them
She never felt the need to let them show
And I've had no trouble with speaking
Or trusting my instincts
That maybe this is one that I should know
But as I'm waiting there
The devil on my shoulder stares
Laughing that the one thing I can't get
Is what I need

She, She is the words that I can't find
How can the only thing that's killing me make me feel so alive
And I couldn't speak
I couldn't breathe to save my life
All of my chances swim like sinking ships
This time it's it
I'll drown or make her mine

My vocal chords have been fighting
My mouth likes to spite me
It never says the words that come to mind
I brought a stick to a gun fight
And I'm stuck with my tongue tied
I run but I can't hide what's always there is

She, She is the words that I can't find
How can the only thing that's killing me make me feel so alive
And I couldn't speak
I couldn't breathe to save my life
All of my chances swim like sinking ships
This time it's it
I'll drown or make her mine

I can see these things I'd do
But never seem to follow through
She, She is the words that I can't find
How can the only thing that's killing me make me feel so alive

She, She is the words that I can't find
How can the only thing that's killing me make me feel so alive
And I couldn't speak
I couldn't breathe to save my life
All of my chances swim like sinking ships
This time it's it
I'll drown or make her mine

I couldn't speak
I couldn't breathe to save my life
All of my chances swim like sinking ships
This time it's it
I'll drown or make her mine


Besides the fact that this is one of my favorite songs, I also think it is perfect for Hazel. It reminds me very much of how Hazel and Augustus see each other in the others eyes. It is like to each other they are a drug that they can not get enough of. They would rather over dose in their love than to not love at all. They love each other very much and would stick by each other no matter how much it kills them.
T- Top Five song list
F- Figurative Language
" I remember once early on when I couldn't get my breath and it felt like my chest was on fire, flames licking the inside of my ribs fighting for a way to burn out of my body, my parents took me to the ER. A nurse asked me about the pain, and I couldn't even speak, so I held up nine fingers." p. 262

"And here it was, the great and terrible ten, slamming me again and again as I lay still and alone in my bet staring at the ceiling, the waves tossing me against the rocks then pulling me back out to sea so they could launch me again into the jagged face of the cliff, leaving me floating face up on the water, undrowned." p.263

These firs two are examples of similes, personification and a hyperbole. Hazel compares the pain to flames, creating a simile. The then discusses how the pain was ''fighting'' and "slamming'' giving it human qualities. This is personification. The whole paragraph is a hyperbole because the pain was not as intense as she was describing it, but in the moment it felt intense to Hazel.

"My thoughts are stars I can't fathom into constellations." (p. 192) This is an example of a metaphor because she is comparing her thoughts to stars.

"Lidewij drove a clunky gray Fiat with an engine that sounded like an excited four-year-old girl." (p. 122) This is an example of a simile because she is comparing Lidewij's car to an excited four-year-old girl, using 'like''.


Q-Quotes
Q-Quotes
“There will come a time,” I said, “when all of us are dead. All of us. There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything. There will be no one left to remember Aristotle or Cleopatra, let alone you. Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and all of this”—I gestured encompassingly—“will have been for naught. Maybe that time is coming soon and maybe it is millions of years away, but even if we survive the collapse of our sun, we will not survive forever. There was time before organisms experienced consciousness, and there will be time after. And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. God knows that’s what everyone else does.” -Hazel Grace Lancaster; chapter 1 page 15
This quote is important quote because it really shows how Hazel feels about life and it sets a good back drop for her character. It also shows a light on life that is different from what most people see. In retrospect, Augustus wants to be the best he can be and leave a legacy behind. Hazel on the other hand realizes that in the big world that most of the time peoples efforts for self betterment are not remembered by future generations. There are famous people who will be remembered for many years, but eventually they too will be forgotten. I think this quote really is the starting point of Hazel and August's relationship. It show how they are complete opposites yet they still thrive of each other.
"It's a metaphor, see: You put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don’t give it the power to do its killing." -Augustus Waters; chapter 1 page 12


I love this quote because it says a lot about Augustus. For starters it shows us what kind of teenage boy he is. Most boys his age do not think of clever metaphors, or let a lone know what a metaphor is. It shows that Augustus has depth to him and sees all the different elements of life. Also I love this because cancer is made to be a big scary monster, yet here what Augustus does is make cancer sound like a wimpy child. He takes the cigarette, puts it between his teeth and does not light it. By doing this he is not giving the cancer creating invention the power to kill him. All he has to do is light it and the cigarette would work its magic. It is like Augustus is saying, "I have cancer, cancer does not have me".
M-Making Connection
While Hazel constantly made references to the hospital talking about the way it felt to be there , how the nurses acted and what she thought about it, I connected to her. When my dad was in the hospital for major heart problems we were in and out of there for about 40 days. During that time I was opened to what the medical world was like. It made me feel happy and sad at the same time. In a way I do not want to sound like a morbid person but when in a hospital I feel like there is death all around me. Although I know that this is not true and that a hospital is a place of healing, I tend to lean toward a negative connotation for hospitals. This may be because of my experience with my dad or maybe that is just a small ounce of pessimism I have in my bones.
Hazel makes a mention to Robert Frosts poem, "Nothing Gold Can Stay". Ever since reading the book "The outsiders" in eighth grade I have adored this poem. Many people see this in a depressing way. Yes I understand that it is practically saying that nothing good will last but I like to see it differently. It reminds me to not live for the now but to live for tomorrow instead. I am more of an Augustus Waters when it comes to wanting to leave a legacy behind, yet this reminds me that most likely my efforts to be accepted by the world will eventually be forgotten. There is no point for me to try to be someone I am not to live a glamorous and Hollywood worthy life. I would much rather live my short time here on Earth being who I know that I want to be.
P-Protagonist
Hazel' is completely her own person. She's got that short pixie haircut that catches Augustus's attention. Plus, she seriously exists in her own little world, 'I could care less' attitude and all. On top of that, Hazel seriously doesn't care what's in and cool anymore, she just knows what she likes. What she likes may be sitting around and watching reality TV shows with her parents, but at least she's being true to herself. This is one of my favorite parts of Hazel, as I feel like I strongly relate.
Hazel is very concerned with not hurting people. She wants to leave as small of a scar on the world as she can before she leaves it. She understands how the world works and is not concerned with her own legacy, but she is concerned with the well being of others.
N-Naration
This story is told in first person and is all Hazel's. It makes perfect sense that the story would be told from her first person perspective because she has such a different life. She really is in her own little world. She always adds her own thoughts and personality into the story.
Because she has physical constraints, Hazel relies on her words, thoughts, and feelings to give her the full experience of life. She is often wordy as she uses her extreme vocabulary, but it's how she can communicate her experiances in life. Hazel brings readers into her world with her words, it's one that's very hard to leave.

R- Resolution
In the end, Hazel is in mourning over Augustus's death. But she finds closure after talking with Peter Van Houten at the funeral where she learns that he had a daughter who died of cancer, which is why he wrote An Imperial Affliction. This gives her some insight as to why the man was why he is. She also discovers a eulogy that Augustus wrote for her before he died, these were the last words from her first love. Which of course tares not only Hazel up but also every reader with a beating heart. The story ends with Augustus sharing his undying love for Hazel.

S-Sensory Details
"I went into the backyard and called him. As the phone rang, I sat down on the grass, which was all overgrown and dandeliony. That swing set was still back there, weeds growing out of the little ditch I'd created from kicking myself higher as a little kid. ... The sky was gray and and low and full of rain but not yet raining." -Chapter 8 page 201.
These sensory detail describe the mood for Hazel. They show how she felt depressed, lonely and sad.

V- Visiting Your Favorite Character
If I were to meet Augustus I would ask him the following questions,

1. How did you deal with not playing basketball anymore after you lost your leg? I play softball and I want to know how he dealt with it, because I know it would be hard for me.

2. How are you so insightful about life? Augustus never ceases to amaze me. It is rare to meet someone with his kind of personality so I want to know how he became who he is.

3. Was it hard to be a good friend to Isaac? When Isaac went blind he was having a rough time, but you always knew the right things to say to him.

4. When you found out you had relapsed in cancer what was the first thing you thought about? Since I have never gone through something like this I am interested to know what he was worried most about when he knew he had such a short time to live.

5. When faced with the decision, would you have cancer again? I know some people say that the cancer made them a different person and that they would not live their life any different so I was wondering what Augustus would want.
W-Why
I believe the human motivation that drives the characters in this book is the thought of dying and what that means to them. For example Augustus is so preoccupied with leaving a legacy behind that people will remember and then Hazel is trying her best to stay in the shadows so that she will not hurt people when she dies. The thought of dying is scary to almost everyone and it motivates people to live differently based on their beliefs.
x- xenophobia
Peter Van Houten experienced xenophobia in this book. This is because he is unwilling to meet with Hazel and Augustus when they visit him in Amsterdam. He had become so wrapped up in his cocoon that he was scared of change. He feared the oblivion of new events. Ever since he lost his daughter he had become so self absorbed and he believed that it was better for him to stay in an isolated routine rather than interact with the outside world.
Y-Your Page
Here I wanted to share a video from one of my favorite YouTubers, Troy Sivan. This is a music video to a song he wrote about teenagers with cancer. He was inspired to write this after he had read "The Fault in Our Stars". I literally cry like a baby every time I watch it. This video definitely touched my heart.
Z- Zinger
The biggest zinger in this book is when Augustus tells Hazel that he has cancer again. The whole first half of the book the readers is worrying about Hazel and how long she will last. It is easy to feel sorry for Augustus because he loves Hazel and she will soon die leaving him alone. Then the entire situation changes and it turns out that Augustus will actually die before Hazel. So Hazel now experiances what it is like to be hurt by the side effects of cancer. She slowly watched Augustus wither away and she felt all the pain that came along with it.

"'The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, / But in ourselves, that we are underlings.'" -Julius Caesar; Shakespeare
