  • Call to Adventure
  • The Genie Foundation granted my wish. We're going to Amsterdam!!
  • Threshold
  • Helpers
  • Hazel Grace's call to adventure starts when she gets an email from her favorite author, Van Houten, tells her that if she is ever in Amsterdam to visit him. A foundation called the Genie Foundation grants sick kids one wish and Agustus wishes for him and Hazel to be able to go to Amsterdam together. The wish was granted and this is Hazel's call to adventure.
  • Physical Challenges
  • There were a few people who guided Hazel and helped her go to Amsterdam. One of those three gaurdians was her doctor. She informed Hazel of the risk of traveling in her condition. Though, her doctor and her parents come to an agreement that she can go to Amsterdam as long as her mother comes along too. the next day, Hazel, Agustus and Hazel's mother leave to Amsterdam.
  • Emotional Challenges
  • All I am is a body of cancer. I am a grenade and one day I will explode and hurt everyone around me.
  • When Hazel and Agustus are in Amsterdam, they learn many things they didn't know about each other. When Agustus and Hazel kiss for the first time, Agustus made Hazel feel special. He teaches her to love herself without really knowing that he was.
  • Temptations
  • Throughout the story, Hazel has many challenges. One of her physical challenges was when they were touring the Anne Frank house and it was hard for her to climb the stairs. She felt weak and tired but pushed forward and made it up. Another physical challenge is her cancer. Her cancer stops her from taking chances but being with Agustus makes her forget about her cancer.
  • Two of Hazel's biggest emotional challenges is that she believes her body is not pleasing to look at. She is very self-conscious about the way she looks because of the cancer. Another emotional challenge Hazel deals with is she doesn't like getting close to someone in fear that one day she will die and hurt them. She compares herself to a grenade and says that one day she will explode and hurt everyone around her.
  • Hazel's temptation is when she they go back home and Agustus gets admitted into the hospital with news that his cancer has returned. Hazel feels as is he is now the grenade and she still remains close with Agustus. She is tempted by leaving Agustus afraid that he will "explode" and hurt her.
  • My cancer has come back.
