Hazel and Gus are two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel's other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group.
I believe we have a choice in this world about how to tell sad stories. On the one hand, you can sugarcoat it. When nothing is too messed up that can't be fixed with a Peter Gabriel song. I like that version as much as the next girl does. It's just not the truth. This is the truth. Hey! Make some friends. Sorry. I've been. I'm Augustus Waters. I've been in remission for about a year and a half. Maybe you'd like to share some of your fears with the group. Fears. Oblivion. What's your name? Hazel. What's your full name? Hazel Grace Lancaster. Why are you staring at me? Cause you're beautiful. So, what's your story? Who's diagnosed? Your real story. I am quite extraordinary. I reject that at the hand you. You know Gus talks about you all the time. We're just friends. I hope you realize you're trying to keep your distance from me in no way lessens my affection for you. Gus, I'm a grenade. One day I'm gonna blow up. And I'm gonna obliterate everything in my wake. And I don't want to hurt you. You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world. But you do have a say in who hurts you. I am in love with you Hazel Grace. And I know that love is just a shout into the void. And that oblivion is inevitable and I am in love with you. All your efforts to keep me from you're gonna fail. We are a hot mess. Are you angry? So angry. You need a break sometime. You gave me a forever within the numbered days and I can't tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. To good life Hazel Grace .Okay.
