The Fault in Our Stars Chapter 18 Summary

  • Hazel wakes up at 2 a.m. to see that her phone is ringing.
  • She's immediately terrified that Augustus has died.
  • When she picks up, though, Augustus says he needs her help. He's at the gas station and his G-tube is messed up.
  • He doesn't want to go to a hospital and just wants her to come help him.
  • So she gets up and takes the car.
  • When she gets to the gas station, she sees that Augustus is inside his car, that he has vomited, and that his G-tube looks totally infected.
  • Hazel knows what she's gotta do: she calls 911 and waits for an ambulance to come.
  • He starts to say that he hates himself, that he hates all of this, and that he just wants to die already.
  • Hazel stays with Augustus and recites a poem to him as he loses consciousness.
