Looking for Alaska

 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. 

Others by John Green:


  1. I like Paper Towns better . But it is second best book of John green on the list..
    John Green is really a smart author.. and Alaska is good and all.. but the Hero scene of Paper Town us just another level...

    What do you think about the series they are making

    1. I loved Paper Towns too but Looking for Alaska is by far my favorite! I'm honestly not sure how I feel about this Hulu series they're making. The casting is just not at all what I was imagining.
