The Fault in Our Stars/ The Fault in Our Stars is a novel which tells the story of Hazel Grace Lancaster, a 16 year old girl who has had cancer for three years, and Augustus 'Gus' Waters, a 17 year old boy who’s now in remission, and once had a tumour in his leg. The two fall hopelessly in love, even though they know their story will only end in heartbreak.

Hazel Grace Lancaster hasn’t experienced the 'awkwardness' that is teenage life in three years after being diagnosed with cancer when she was thirteen. Forced by her mother, Hazel Grace reluctantly goes to a cancer support group to meet others who supposedly understand what she’s going through.

This bland and truly miserable support group is where she meets the charming, charismatic and unremarkably handsome Augustus 'Gus' Waters, an amputee whose optimism towards life interests Hazel. Gus becomes immediately attracted to Hazel and, though the feeling is mutual, Hazel knows that their love is doomed from the start.

However, Gus still charms Hazel. He changes her life by giving her, as she states: 'Forever within the numbered of days' and changing her attitude towards life.

The two travel to Amsterdam to search for the author of their favourite book, 'An Imperial Affliction', where their relationship blossoms and they learn that life, with or without cancer, is hard to face in general, and sometimes those who advise you to make daring and impulsive choices can’t always pluck up the courage to make their own.

Their 'little infinity' reminds you that even the most heart-wrenching love story can be poetic, intelligent, humorous and full of positivity, even when you know there’s no chance of ever having a 'fairy-tale' ending.
