1. It's a love story with cancer but it's not about cancer
The Fault in Our Stars is amazing because although there is the looming doom of a love story involving cancer; it's not about cancer. The Fault in Our Stars serves as a reminder to us all that a person is not their disease. They are still a person and they are so much more than their disease. Young Hazel Grace is reminded of that and we should all be reminded of that as well.

5. The Namesake
The title for the book (The Fault in Our Stars) was inspired by a line in Shakespeare's play Julius Cesar.
"The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, / But in ourselves, that we are underlings." -Julius Cesar (Act 1, Scene 2)
