Quote #1

I'd learned this from my aforementioned third best friend, Peter Van Houten, the reclusive author of An Imperial Affliction, the book that was as close a thing as I had to a Bible. (1.65)

Can we consider An Imperial Affection to be a kind of religion for Hazel? Does she think of it like that?

Quote #2

"Everyone was so kind. Strong, too. In the darkest days, the Lord puts the best people into your life." (2.33)

Obviously, Augustus's household is a little more than religious than Hazel's. For proof, see: Encouragements. Does this create any sort of divide between Hazel and Augustus?

Quote #3

"I'm just saying: maybe scrambled eggs are ghettoized, but they're also special. They have a place and a time, like church does." (10.61)

What is the place and time for church, according to Augustus Waters?
