The Fault in Our Stars
The Fault in Our Stars is a production directed by Josh Boone, written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. The main characters are Shailene Woodley (Hazel) and Ansel Elgort (Augustus). It is about two teenagers, with different types of cancer, fall in love after they meet in a cancer support group.
This movie was inspired by a girl named Esther Earl that was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 12, and died in 2010 shortly after her 16th birthday. Over time, she made lots of friends because she started blogging and making YouTube videos. She was a fan of Harry Potter and an active member of the Harry Potter Alliance.
At LeakyCon, a convention for Harry Potter fans, Esther met an author and vlogger John Green, who became a friend. John Green dedicated his best selling book "The Fault in Our Stars" to Esther.
When John Green's film agent asked him to send the novel out to studios and producers, he said not to bother. John Green changed his mind, sold the rights, and loves the film
