While Hazel attends a church support group for cancer survivors, she meets a boy that is one year older than her, Augustus Waters. While Augustus had a type of cancer that causes him to lose his leg and wear a prosthetic, it also has a survival rate that is much higher than Hazel's death sentence. From the first day that Hazel meets Augustus, the two are practically inseparable. The basis of their relationship ends up being Hazel's favorite book, An Imperial Affliction.

Description : Essay from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, course: IB English, language: English, abstract: "The Fault In Our Stars" is a tragic love story that deals with the sufferings and deaths of cancer patients. John Green borrows the title of the story from Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar," wherein Cassius says, "The fault dear Brutus is not in our stars but in ourselves that we are underlings." But contrary to what Cassius says, this story establishes the conundrum that we are helpless before our destiny. In Green's novel, Hazel and Augustus are lovers, not unlike "Antony and Cleopatra," and "Romeo and Juliet." But what separates them from the legendary lovers is the fact that they are born with cancer in their cells. Their story, although of great love and compassion, will not be written in the pages of history.
Description : According to author John Green, The Fault In Our Stars was inspired by his friendship with Esther Earl, who "redefined the process of dying young for me." (December 2012 Good Reads interview, http://www.goodreads.com/interviews/show/828.John_Green). He cautions his readers not to take the novel too literally however, stating that he doesn't "want people conflating Esther with Hazel (they're very different), and it's extremely important to me that I not claim to be telling Esther's story. Esther's story belongs to Esther and to her family." (John Green's tumblr, August 2, 2012 http://fishingboatproceeds.tumblr.com/post/28557373623/everybody-was-told-to-make-a-funny-face-but-i). Esther's story is told in the 2014 posthumous memoir This Star Won't Go Out : the Life and Words of Esther Grace Earl.
