Looking For Alaska

Looking For Alaska

by JohnGreen (Author)

Synopsis

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.

Media Reviews

Miles's narration is alive with sweet, self-deprecating humor, and his obvious struggle to tell the story truthfully adds to his believability. School Library Journal

What sings and soars in this gorgeously told tale is Green's mastery of language and the sweet, rough edges of Pudge's voice. Girls will cry and boys will find love, lust, loss and longing in Alaska's vanilla-and-cigarettes scent. Kirkus

This is an amazing first novel by a writer who is young enough to vividly remember his powerful years of high school and he expertly turns remembrance into story. Children's Literature

The novel's chief appeal lies in Miles's well-articulated lust and his initial excitement about being on his own for the first time. Publishers Weekly
