The novel is about two teenagers with cancer. Hazel Grace L., she is 16 years old, her parents force her to go to a support group. During the sessions, she met Augustus Waters. The two teenargers are passionate about a novel by Peter Van Houtent, which stops in mid-sentence. Curious to know the rest, Hazel and August plan to go to Amsterdam to meet the author. They make the travel thanks to an association which helps sick children in the fulfillement of theirs wish. A love story takes place between the two teenagers.
It's two characters which have a lot of humour and which share the same outlook on theirs disease and on life.They have a very lively way to be here and it's what I've adored in the novel.
