"the fault in our stars" is a book written by John Green in 2012, eventually releasing as a film in 2014. main characters include, Shailene Woodley, acting as Hazel Grace Lancaster,
Ansel Elgort, acting as Augustus Waters. this story was narrated by Hazel Grace Lancaster, a 16 year old girl, who suffered from cancer. she was forced to attend a support group where she met lots of new people, especially Augustus Waters, she eventually fell in love with Augustus Waters. they agreed to read each other's favorite novels, "An Imperial Affection" from Hazel Grace, and "The Price of Dawn" from Augustus Waters. after a few weeks, Augustus Waters confessed that his cancer had returned and they affirmed their love and support for each other. upon returning from Indianapolis, Augustus Waters' health deteriorated and he landed in the ICU for a few days. fearing his death, he invites Hazel Grace and Issac, a boy who had eye cancer, who they met at the support group, to his pre-funeral, where they gave their eulogies to him. unfortunately, Augustus Waters died soon after, which left Hazel Grace heartbroken. eventually, she learns that Augustus Waters was writing a sequel to "An Imperial Affection". Hazel Grace read his words, "getting hurt in this world is inevitable, but we do get to choose whom we allow to hurt us, i am happy with my choice, and i hope you're happy with your choice". the story ends with Hazel Grace stating that she is happy with her choice
my favorite character is Hazel Grace Lancaster because she was brave with her choices and dared to seek a relationship despite being different from others. this explains that she had the power to reject the negative point of herself and shows that she is very persistent with her choices, despite people thinking of her being an outcast.
this book relates to people with illnesses, they fought their lives for the happiness, laughter, and most importantly love. it inspires people to be brave with choices and embrace the lives they were given without being ashamed of who they are, what they have and what they mean to others. the society thinks that whoever is different is really different from themselves, think again, was it their choice to be that way? they're just different from us physically , but that doesn't mean they're different from the bottom of their hearts.
i'll end off with a quote from John Green,
"just remember that sometimes, the way you think of a person isn't the way they actually are."
