The Fault in Our Stars

Connecting modern literature to Greek myths

About the book

The fault in our stars is about a 16 year old girl named Hazel Grace who has lung cancer. Hazel has a pretty boring life until her over emotional parents decide that she is depressed and send her to a support group. Her life changes when one day at support group she meets 17 year old Augustus Waters (Gus for short) an ex-basket ball star and an amputee. They soon fall in love, but things take a turn for the worst when Gus is diagnosed with cancer again.

Connections between my book and greek mythology

Zeus and Agustus

Zeus and Augustus are alike in the way that they are both considered very handsome and intelligent. Altho Augustus is not as promiscuous as Zeus he is quite the ladies man. But the thing that brings him and Hazel together the most is his intelligence

Athena and Hazel

Athena and Hazel are very much alike in a lot of ways. Both athena and hazel are very strong women/girls in their stories. Athena is the goddess of war strategies so she is very intelligent and strong. In her own way hazel is just like athena even though she isn't physically strong due to her lungs she is incredibly strong hearted and although she has missed a lot of school she is very smart.
