“I believe we have a choice in this world about how to tell sad stories,” says Hazel Grace Lancaster, the protagonist of John Green’s recent best-selling novel, "The Fault in Our Stars." The recent film adaptation of the novel, directed by Josh Boone, topped charts this past weekend, grossing $48.2 million during its debut. The film grappled with looming questions about suffering, tragedy and how to truthfully tell sad stories.
