Rising Action/ Climax: Show how a character develop overtime in the story
Imagine your alone at school, no friends to talk to. The uncomfortable feeling in side you. Nobody to talk to, except your parents. Loneliness starting to consume you. But one day another student walked up to you and started talking to you. Then after that you guys became friends. That feeling of hope made you stop giving up on yourself. This is how Hazel, the protagonist, felt when she met Augustus in the book The Fault In Our Stars.
In the story, Hazel has cancer in her Lungs. She knows that she’s not going to last very long. But one day she met a guy that kept staring at her. His name was Augustus Waters. They hanged out that day. She liked him. “Flirting was new to me, but i like it” (Green, 52). The feeling of being liked made her want to be with him even more. “I almost felt like he was there in my room with me, but in a way it was better.” (Green 72). She is starting to feel hope. She is starting to accept herself as who she is, because Augustus also had cancer in his leg.
After she found out the Augustus likes her, they started dating. Augustus cares for her, it’s because he already accepted her by who she is. That’s what helped Hazel accept her condition. She went to Amsterdam with Augustus, and she meets some challenges ahead. “No, there are many stars,” She said. “Steep stairs.” “It’s okay,” I said again. Augustus started to say something, but i interrupted. “It’s okay. I can do it.” This shows that she has hope that she can push herself even though the steep stairs have a chance of killing her. But knowing that Augustus is there, she feels safe.
