This study is focus on described conflicts in the main character (external and internal conflicts), and the presentation of the main character of the novel through the psychological aspect. The conflict is analyzed based on the theory of literature which is proposed by Kenney (1966) who divides conflicts into two types, external and internal conflict. The description of the presentation of the main character is analyzed based on the theory proposed by Bernhardt (1953) who divides the psychological aspect into want, emotions, and feelings.

It was followed by reading the novel and the biography of the author, and was then followed by marking and taking notes of parts of the novel which related to the study, and then the data was categorized based on the theories. The analysis brought some conclusions. Hazel as the main character is described as a very thoughtful character. That is why she gets a lot of wars between her mind, and gets a lot of conflicts with people around her. Beside that Hazel is just like another teenager who wants to have a normal life. Still she realizes that she has a cancer. The sources of her conflict appear because of wars in her own mind. She thinks too much until can not handle it.
