The New York Times’ No.1 Best Seller The Fault In Our Stars is the fifth novel by author John Green. Originally published in 2012, the story follows sixteen-year-old cancer patient Hazel who, forced by her parents to attend a cancer support group, meets and subsequently falls in love with the witty seventeen-year-old Augustus Waters, an ex-basketball player and amputee. Recently adapted by director Josh Boone and scribes Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, the film adaptation explores the highs and lows of being in love, but more importantly the extravagant highs and frequented lows of being in love and having cancer. With Shailene Woodley playing Hazel and Ansel Elgort playing Gus, The Fault In Our Stars is one of the most bitter-sweet romances of 2014.
