The Fault in Our Stars, written by esteemed author John Green, has been an emotion filled experience primarily based upon the teenage protagonist, Hazel Grace Lancaster. Unfortunately, during the duration of the novel, she suffers from thyroid cancer, which makes her dependent on a heavy and irksome oxygen tank due to the fact that her "lungs sucked at being lungs". Despite her debilitating condition, Hazel’s personality throughout the story involves wry, dark humor, in which the audience often sees helps her cope with the diagnosis she is forced to endure. Her true humor radiates whenever she is forced to attend a cancer support group at her local church that her mother coerces her to attend. Even though this is just one glimpse of Hazel’s morbid outlook on matters at hand, when reading the novel, the reader discovers how much of a blunt and grim humor Green attributes Hazel’s character with. Nonetheless, the elaborate story commences at Hazel’s Support Group, in which she sees what she describes as the one positive aspect of it, her friend Isaac, who had lost one eye and unfortunately was going to lose another as a result of his cancer. For the first time accompanying Isaac was his friend, Augustus Waters, a strikingly significant character who takes immediate interest in Hazel. Augustus also had cancer, but a case of osteosarcoma that unfortunately resulted in him having his leg amputated. Afterwards, the story takes off with the two characters building a romantic relationship. On their first encounter, the two avid readers share book suggestions to one another. Significantly, an important aspect of Hazel’s favorite book she suggests to Augustus, An Imperial Affliction, about a protagonist that has cancer, leads to the two later traveling to Amsterdam. There they meet the author, Peter Van Houten, who resides intoxicated having left the book on a relentless cliffhanger after what the teens later find was a result of the author's daughter’s loss to the horrific battle of cancer at a young age. The reason their travels are so significant at the time is because Hazel’s condition unfortunately has caused her to have an episode that resulted in admission to the ICU for a couple of days. This moment of Hazel and Augustus’ relationship was very significant, as it showed that throughout the entirety of Hazel’s hospitalization. Throughout the duration of the book, Augustus and Hazel’s relationship flourishes in the fun, youthful, and unique way Green describes it until an unexpected heartbreaking outcome occurs: Augustus’ suffers a severe relapse of his osteosarcoma and he passes away. While in the novel one of Hazel’s main concerns was passing away and hurting Augustus due to the lack of her presence, instead circumstances resulted in Augustus’ passing profoundly affecting Hazel, giving the novel its moving and emotionally heart rending twist.
