Looking for Alaska, Paperback
4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


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.

Review by

Funny, sad, touching. I understand why John Green has become immensely popular, writing to young adults without looking down on them and without trying to patronize. Writing about love and loss as it is, not as if the readers need to be protected from sadness and grief. And this is just his debut.

Review by

An amazing book. Just perfect. It is all about figuring your way out of the labyrinth, figuring why they got out and what more to add when you are here.
