Remembering the Girl Who Inspired 'The Fault in Our Stars' Published: June 6, 2014

As the movie adaptation of "The Fault in Our Stars" hits theaters, a local news station took a moment to remember an essential figure in the universe of Stars author John Green: Esther Earl.

Yahoo Movies reports fans of the book know her as the 16-year-old Massachusetts girl who died of cancer in 2010, and who served as an inspiration for Green's novel about desperately ill teenagers.

In a Tumblr post from 2012 commemorating what would have been her 18th birthday, Green wrote of Earl: “She was young, blessed with a genuinely sophomoric sense of humor, silly, empathetic, madly in love with her friends and family, and a very gifted writer.”
