One of Hazel’s deepest fears is hurting those who love her and this is portrayed when she says “I am a grenade”. Her anxiety of hurting those close causes the strains between her relationship with Augustus and her parents.

We are bound to meet the “expiration date” whether it is our own or someone else’s. For me, there were two fast-approaching expiration dates, all thanks to a good family friend, cancer. Around the time that I read this book, my father’s uncle - Uncle Spider we called him - was diagnosed with cancer after being in remission for a few months. Shortly after his death, my great-grandfather Ed was diagnosed with cancer a second time and passed away only a year after his son Spider. I read this book knowing what cancer does to individuals and their loved ones.
