First drink. First prank. First friend. First love. Last words. Miles Halter is fascinated by famous last words--and tired of his safe life at home. He leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet Fran ois Rabelais called "The Great Perhaps." Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young, who will pull Miles into her labyrinth and catapult him into the Great Perhaps.
Looking for Alaska brilliantly chronicles the indelible impact one life can have on another. A modern classic, this stunning debut marked #1 bestselling author John Green's arrival as a groundbreaking new voice in contemporary fiction.

I'm a fan of J. Green's work and I think this one is the best young adult novel he ever wrote. 'Looking For Alaska' is, honestly, just like TFIOS, tragically funny on its own way. I love how sly Alaska and how reckless Pudge is. This is absolutely a representative to youth life nowadays.
