Fault In Our Stars – Rising Action


The movie poster which I did is based on the book, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I created it using mainly text boxes from Word Document. I tried to portray the main conflict in the Rising Action.

The current conflict in the book is true love versus “cancer” (Green 3). The Fault in Our Stars is a book about a girl named Hazel who is battling cancer, while having a love affair with Augustus Walters, the other main protagonist. However, cancer has been becoming a huge problem and always got in the way with her love life. Hazel planned a trip with Augustus to Amsterdam, but due to cancer” I can’t go” (118), both her parents and the doctors are forbidding her to do so. She is terribly sad but doesn’t give up hope.

In the poster I tried to focus on what the protagonist would be feeling. In the poster they are hugging each other which shows that they are really determined. Also to emphasize it I put a statement in bold text in the center.

One thought on “Fault In Our Stars – Rising Action

  1. Hi Aaron! I really like the movie poster you created for The Fault in Our Stars because even though there is already a movie you put your own ideas into the poster. I think you did a good job explaining the conflict while not giving away parts of the book: “She is terribly sad but doesn’t give up hope” (Aaron). This sentence also makes the reader want to read the book. The idea of how physical disabilities have affected a person’s love life reminds me of the autobiography Laughing at My Nightmare. The author, Shane Burcaw, is in a wheelchair and he also faces challenges when it comes to love. What do you think motivates Hazel to stay hopeful?
