Exposition Exposition is the part of the film that introduces all the characters and settings in the story so the reader understands the rest of the book or story. In The Fault In Our Stars, the exposition is when Hazel is taken to the meetings with other kids with cancer Rising Action/ Inciting Incident In The Fault In Our Stars, the inciting moment is when Augustus is introduced and Hazel. The rising action is during the time that Hazel and Augustus start to know each other better and become really close to each other. One of the major events during the rising action, is when Augustus tells Hazel that they are going to Amsterdam, even though this moment can also be considered inciting incident to a new conflict, it does a major effect on the main climax. Climax the climax in The Fault In Our Stars, is when Hazel and Gus make their friendship become into a more serious relationship and start dating each other. In my opinion, this is the climax because it is a moment that is written to get the reader&apos;s hopes up and make them think that everything will be different since they have each other in a more serious way. The voice of the author, John Green, also changes after this moment. Falling Action The Falling Action is where the climax is reflected. During this process, a minor conflict may be resolved, a new conflict may be introduced and the characters may change. The Falling Action in this book, is when Gus and Hazel go back to the U.S. And Gus gets really sick. This is the falling action because it is where the love between Hazel and Gus is reflected in a higher level. A major event in the Falling action, is the &quot;pre-funeral&quot; that Gus decides to create because he knows he will die soon. Resolution Resolution is the part where most of the conflicts, including the major conflict, are resolved. In the resolution, a new conflict may be introduced if the book is part of a series, the ending doesn&apos;t have to be satisfying. The resolution in The Fault In Our Stars,
