The Fault in Our Stars

Hazel is just a regular 16 year old girl, but has had many difficult obstacles in her life. Hazel does not have a motive until she meets someone that changes her perspective on life.

Hazel is a 16 year old girl from Indianapolis, that has cancer. Her doctors recommend Hazel to go to this support group, but she does not want to go. Hazel's mom forces her to go to support group because she wants her to have a life. In an unexpected time, Hazel meets a person that changes her life. Augustus Waters, a tall, leanly muscular, blue eyed, handsome guy that was invited to support group by Issac (another person from support group that has cancer and looses his eye sight) is the person to change Hazel's perspective about life and he teaches her many life lessons she has not appreciated or bothered to pay attention in her limited time she has had earth. With Augustus Waters by her side, Hazel starts to realize the beautiful things about life and how she should start to appreciate it more than ever because you can only get one life and you have to live it to the fullest.

In chapter one, we are introduced to the metaphor Augustus lives by.

¨It's a metaphor, see: You put the killing thing right between you teeth, but you don't give it the power to do it's killing.¨This metaphor represents Augustus and his battle against his cancer. Even though his cancer has set him back physically, he does not give it the power to hinder him emotionally or mentally.  

I really like this book because you can actually make connections to this book and your feelings and this book is not suspenseful, but yet it is exiting at the same time. The author wrote this book on someone who he actually knew. I think that the theme or message the author, John Green, is trying to give in this novel is that no matter what you should always live your life to the fullest because you may never know if today might be your last day.
