Before Hazel Grace leaves Augustus they both agree to read each other’s favorite novel. Hazel Graces’ favorite novel is “An Imperial Affliction” whilst Augustus’s favorite novel is “The Price of Dawn”. Hazel explains to Augustus that the author disappeared after the book was published and hasn’t been heard of since. After a week Augustus tells Hazel Grace that he has tracked down the author and the plot starts to evolve from here. Hazel Grace starts to fall in love with Augustus however she doesn’t want to hurt him so tries to avoid him.
