This is obviously just a plan for a cover; I’m pretty much artistically talentless but I’m a little bit obsessed by this idea and would love to see it made by another, more talented Nerdfighter. 

I’ve interpreted the title as thus:

  • John said he sort of disagreed with the Shakespeare quote
  • “The fault, Dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves” – an argument for free will, and against the idea of fate?
  • Fate being determined by stars, and Cancer being a constellation and Zodiac / star sign.
  • The title, again John disagreeing with the original implication, then meaning that the fault (i.e. cancer) isn’t within the characters’ control, but in the stars (i.e. fate) – The Fault In Our Stars.
  • Hence the use of the Cancer constellation.

Hope people can read my annotations OK 🙂
