Cause I enjoy looking at beautiful people and I decided not to deny myself the simpler pleasures of existence.

Hazel Grace Lancaster is a 17 year old teenage girl whom has an extreme thyroid cancer that has been slowed down by a drug, but she knows that her life wont last many more years.
Hazel's mom sent her to a weekly support group because she assumed she was depressed as a side effect from the cancer. This is where she soon met a boy named Augustus Waters.
Mom, Augustus got an email back from Peter Van Houten and he said that he can answer our questions in person!! But... we have to go to him.
Oh that's terrific and I'd love to let you go but we're tight on money and can't just be spending it on flights.
Augustus Waters invites Hazel to hangout at his house after they've been texting back and forth shortly after they met. They both discussed their situations with cancer and agreed to read each other's favorite books.
After Gus read Hazel's favorite book, An Imperial Affliction by Peter Van Houten, he became frustrated that the book ended without a conclusion. Gus finds the author's assistant's email and soon gets Houten's email, then him and Hazel emailed their questions to him about the ending.
Hazel asked her mom if her and Gus could travel to Amsterdam because its always been Hazel's dream to ask Houten questions about the book.
