Pudge moves to Birmingham, Alabama from Florida to attend Culver Creek Boarding School. He's a loner, a nobody, and he's awkward as hell. But the Colonel, Takumi, Lara, and Alaska change his entire view of the world. Alaska is one of the most unique characters I have ever come across. Although the book is written through Pudge's perspective, the entire book is truly written for us to see Alaska. The four of these teens are on a mission to make junior year the best year yet. They smoke cigarettes, they drink wine, and they pull pranks because that's what life is all about to them. The journey they go on is not the most significant part of the book, but it is obviously important. I honestly grew to love Alaska, she is definitely someone I wouldn't mind becoming. Her character is what makes this one of my favorite John Green books. "We all go." We're all forgotten. We're all just living for today. Alaska may smoke cigarettes to die, where we just smoke for enjoyment. We have to go out and live our lives. Everything John Green writes is a masterpiece and I really encourage everyone to read this.
