When Shakespeare said “The fault dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves”, he was pointing at how people mess up their relationships because of various things they do and then go around blaming the stars.
But what if the fault indeed is in the stars? If the relationship is perfect in every way, but you still end up being separated from your loved one because of factors that are not in your control?
The Fault in our Stars is a story of one such star crossed couple. Hazel Grace Lancaster, a sixteen year old who has been fighting Stage 4 Thyroid cancer with metastasis forming in her lungs, but has managed to live with her disease owing to doses of an experimental drug called Phalanxifor. As she spends most of her time indoors reading the same book over and over again, her mother starts to think she is depressed and sends her to a support group.
Here she meets Augustus Waters, who used to have cancer and has now come to support his best friend. This is one love story that just tugs at the heart strings quite painfully.

Before joining Culver Creek Boarding School, Miles Halter or “Pudge”’s life was pretty normal. Or as normal as a fanboy’s life can get. He loved books and obsessed over famous last words.
His life changes the moment he sets his eyes on Alaska Young, a clever, funny, sexy, beautiful but also utterly screwed, self destructive girl. They are totally different, and this difference is evident in the line mentioned in the book: “If people were rain, I was a drizzle and she was a hurricane.”
Alaska pulls Pudge into his world and satisfies his deep seated longing to achieve his “Great Perhaps” and he inadvertently falls in love with her. Thus, changing his life for ever.
