Augustus and Hazels love life-“Maybe okay will be our always.” “Okay,” I said.” (chapter 5, page 73)
How Augustus feels-“I’m on a roller coaster that only goes up, my friend.” (chapter 1, page 11)
When “I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.” (chapter 10, page 153)
The grenade is a symbol in the Fault in Our Stars because eventually she will die and she will hurt the people around her.

Static & Dynamic characters
Static characters are characters who remain the same throughout the book. If a character's traits don't undergo a massive change in the story, this character could be considered static.
In TFIOS an example of a Static character is Hazels mother because she is the same during the whole book. She acts the same and she doesn't change.
Dynamic characters are characters who undergo a massive change in character
In TFIOS an example of a Dynamic character is Augustus. I chose him to be a Dynamic character because his cancer has gotten worse and he got worse. Eventually in the book he dies.
I picked this song to describe this novel because Hazel and Augustus's relationship was like a battlefield. They were dealing with stuff for example their cancer. Their cancer was like a battle that they were facing and sometimes their cancer would interfere with their relationship.
