Topic: The Fault In Our Stars: John Green

This book is about Hazel Grace Lancaster, a young teenage girl who has been diagnosed with Stage 5 lung cancer. Her mother forces her to attend a cancer support group as she thinks Hazel needs to go out and meet new people. Hazel is 16 years old and is super hesitant about going to this support group and then comes to an assumption that it was a good idea. Due to Hazel's lung cancer, she uses a portable oxygen tank to breathe properly. In one of the group gatherings, she catches the eye of a teenage boy, and through the course of the meeting she learns the boy’s name is Augustus Waters. He's there to support their mutual friend, Isaac. Isaac had a tumor in one eye that he had removed, and now he has to have his other eye taken out as well. After the meeting ends, Augustus approaches Hazel and tells her she looks like Natalie Portman in V for Vendetta. She takes that as a compliment and continues talking to him.
