Book Cover Drop Cap for John Green's The Fault in Our Stars

I loved this book and it was so rich in metaphor that I had trouble narrowing down how to represent my concept. The G was significant not only as the author's last name but in the names of both main characters (Gus and Hazel Grace). I'll try to let the image speak for itself without giving away any spoilers. Mostly, I wanted to represent the two characters as intertwined pieces. When you are introduced to Gus you assume he is the strong piece in the relationship and in the end Hazel is the one who wraps around him, strengthens him, and lifts him up, without hindering his life (wrapping too tightly). Neither could have existed in their infinity without the other.

Let me know what you think! I welcome feedback. Especially, if you've read the book. And, if you haven't, do it!
