Product description

The unmissable first novel from bestselling and award-winning author of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. "If people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane." Miles Halter's whole life has been one big non-event, until he meets Alaska Young. Gorgeous, clever and undoubtedly screwed-up, Alaska draws Miles into her reckless world and irrevocably steals his heart. For Miles, nothing can ever be the same again. 'Looking for Alaska' brilliantly captures the exquisite painful joy of living and loving. Poignant, funny, heartbreaking and compelling, this novel will stay with you forever.

It is hard to write a review without giving away spoilers...
It is a good book. The writer has the writing skills needed to make you get attached to the characters in it. And I was completely blown away by the after... a twist that really caught me off guard

Review quote

Praise for John Green: "Electric ... Filled with staccato bursts of humor and tragedy" Jodi Picoult "A novel of life and death and the people caught in between, 'The Fault in Our Stars' is John Green at his best. You laugh, you cry, and then you come back for more" Markus Zusak, author of The Book Thief "Damn near genius ... Simply devastating ... Fearless in the face of powerful, uncomplicated, unironized emotion" TIME "Funny ... Poignant ... Luminous" Entertainment Weekly
