Hazel Grace was a recovering cancer patient who didn't see much in life other than reading the same book over and over again. Her mom forced her to be social but she never really saw any point in that. Her family was very convinced she was depressed.
Hazel Grace one day met a young man named Augustus Waters at her youth group. she was very iffy about hanging out with him because all she has ever been doing is sitting in a hospital bed or reading boooks.
She eventually opened up to Agustus and they shared interests, hang out and got to know eachother alot better.
After a very disappointing choice Agustus chose to do in front of hazle. The cigarette was never lit but she took it the wrong way considering she has lung cancer."You put the killing thing between your teeth, but never give it the power to kill you."
They get invited to Amsterdam to receive news they did not want. However, they did not mind the trip since they had each other. As soon as they fell in love, Augustus died from using the Cigarette in a non-metaphor way.
Hazel grace is in grief, However Augustus taught her that there is much more to life than burying her head in a book.The end of the story is seen by most, as a tragedy , but from her it was an experience and he will forever be in her heart.
