Plot Summary
Hazel Grace Lancaster is a 16 year old girl that was diagnosed with lung cancer when she was 12 years old. The Fault in Our Stars is the heartfelt story, narrated by Hazel herself, about her struggles and fears of being a teenager with cancer. She spends most of her time at home with her parents, lying in bed reading books and watching reruns of America's Next Top Model. Her mom forces her to go to a support group for depressed teenagers with cancer. At this support group she meets Augustus Waters, a seventeen year old boy who lost one of his legs to cancer. Hazel is surprised when Augustus shows interest in her. As the two of them get closer, Hazel becomes apprehensive about the relationship. But Augustus changes Hazels' views. They bond over one of Hazels' favorite books, An Imperial Affliction, by Peter Van Houten. When they get the chance to go to Amsterdam and meet this author, they immediately take it. But once in Amsterdam, they find that the mysterious author they came to love, was not who they thought he was. He is an old, sarcastic alcoholic. The two soon realize that they don’t need the answers to their questions they've been dying to know about the book because they have each other, and that’s all that matters. Shortly after they come to terms with their relationship, Augustus reveals that his cancer has returned. When they return to the United States, things begin to unravel and Hazel is forced to cope with the tragic loss of Augustus.

Appearance

Hazel and Augustus won't let anything prevent them from being together.

At first Hazel fears that their illnesses will interfere with their relationship, but then realizes that their love is too strong to let fear get in the way.
True love survives through hardships.
"I am a grenade and at some point I am going to blow up and I would like to minimize the casualties okay?"
Hazel explains that she can't get any closer to Augustus. She feels that her time is limited and doesn't want to get closer to anyone else, in fear of hurting them when she dies.
"I fell in love the way you fall asleep, slowly then all at once."
Hazel admits that she has fallen in love with Augustus, despite her fears of hurting him
"I tried to tell myself that it could be worse, that the world was not a wish-granting factory, that I was living with cancer not dying of it, that I mustn't let it kill me before it kills me."
Hazel doesn't want to let cancer take over her life. Augustus shows Hazel how to let go of her cancer and just be herself.
Figurative Language
Metaphor
“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.”
Personification
"That's the thing about pain,' Augustus said, and then glanced back at me. 'It demands to be felt."
Symbol
Simile
"It looked like an old painting, but real-everything achingly idyllic in the morning light-and I thought how wonderfully strange it would be to live in a place where almost everything had been built by the dead."
Allusion
“But it is the nature of stars to cross, and never was Shakespeare more wrong than when he has Cassius note, ‘The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars / But in ourselves.”
"Conjoiner rejoinder poisoner concealer revelator. Look at it, rising up and rising down, taking everything with it.”


"What’s that?" Anna asked.

"Water," the Dutchman said. "Well, and time."
