The award-winning, genre-defining debut from #1 bestselling author of The Fault in Our StarsWinner of the Michael L. Printz Award Los Angeles Times Book Prize Finalist New York Times bestsellerBefore. Miles “Pudge” Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave “the Great Perhaps” even more (Francois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . .After. Nothing is ever the same.

I finished this book this morning on the way to work. I don’t know why I like the book. Probably because it’s everything I wanted to experience as a teenager but never had the guts to. This book gave me my teenage years back and I liked it. Sure, the story is sad and the second half of the book play...

I read this book for Banned Books Week. I think it was challenged for inappropriate language and sexual nature or something like that. Anyways, it's a mature YA in that aspect. I am an adult that reads much more explicit all the time, but it did surprise me a little. I guess I've forgotten how i...

Looking for Alaska By John Green I give Looking for Alaska 4 stars out of 5. In my opinion, it wasn't the easiest book to read but I think that happens when you have complicated/messed up characters. Even when not knowing a few of the words, you feel like you understand every moment in the book tho...
