Fault In Our Stars
By: John Green
The main conflict throughout the story is that hazel is battling cancer and has been battling cancer her whole life. Hazel has thyroid and a long-settled satellite colony in her lungs. She constantly has to carry around a cylindrical green tank to help her get oxygen to her lungs. Cancer is a side effect of dying. We chose this song because its all about cancer and if Hazel did die would anyone actually notice.
Song For Conflict
Song For Setting
So far the main setting has been at Support Group in the basement of a church. That is where Hazel met Augustus and they meet there once a week. They went to Augustus’s house to watch V for Vendetta. They have been in the hospital for Isaac and they also went to that park that had sculptures behind the museum.
“The Support Group, of course, was depressing as hell. It met every Wednesday in the basement of a stone-walled Episcopal church shaped like a cross.” (Green, pg. 4)
We chose the song “A Thousand Miles” because it is based an a urban city. The song lyrics say “Making my way downtown… just making my way through the crowd.. I need you… I miss you… If I could just see you tonight.”
Setting- Time Period
"As I recall, you promised to CALL when you finished the book, not text."
We chose this quote it shows that it's present day and they have the "up to date" cell phones and technology.
We chose the song Call me Maybe by, Carly Rae Jepsen. We picked this song because it says "CAll me maybe" and the time period we are in is like present day and it's technology we use in our lives today.
In the very beginning of the book the mood from Hazel isn’t that great. She really doesn’t like her life because she has cancer. She has to carry around her oxygen tank and has struggle with it. She doesn’t like being odd and weird and cancer puts that upon her. We chose the song Fix You by Coldplay. This song describes Hazel cause she hates cancer she knows the reality of cancer and how it can cause death. She really just wants to be fixed but she knows she can’t until her treatment is done.
"I'm Hazel , I'd say when they'd get to me. Sixteen. Thyroid originally but with an impressive and long-settled satellite colony in my lungs. and I'm doing okay."
I chose this statement because she says this in a very sarcastic tone and you can obviously tell she doesn't like having cancer, also she doesn't like going to support group.
