The Fault in Our Stars is technically set in Indianapolis USA. The story takes place in modern contemporary times. This makes it more relatable to the average reader.
Hazel and Augustus's hometown is in Indianapolis, Indiana, United States. However, the story does take place in Amsterdam, Denmark when Hazel and Augustus go to meet the author of Hazel's favorite novel, Peter Van Houten. The exact time that the story takes place is unknown, but we can infer that it takes place in modern contemporary times based on the language and phrases that are used, the places that are in the novel, the clothing that the characters wear, and the things that were talked about throughout the novel.
