First drink. First prank. First friend. First love.
Miles Halter is fascinated by famous last words—and tired of his safe life at home. He leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet François Rabelais called the “Great Perhaps.” Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young, who will pull Miles into her labyrinth and catapult him into the Great Perhaps.
Looking for Alaska brilliantly chronicles the indelible impact one life can have on another. A modern classic, this stunning debut marked #1 bestselling author John Green’s arrival as a groundbreaking new voice in contemporary fiction.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Even if you’ve yet to experience your first big love or loss, John Green’s debut will leave you with all the feels. Especially the audiobook, read by geek culture icon Wil Wheaton, who hits all the right notes as the book’s teenage hero, Miles “Pudge” Halter. When Miles moves to a new school, he meets a beautiful yet troubled girl named Alaska, who turns his life upside down. Even in his debut novel, Green—who became a global superstar with The Fault in Our Stars—shows himself to be a master of realistic teen dialogue, giving us a load of philosophical musings, quippy humor, and awkward youthful infatuation. Looking for Alaska is an absolute pleasure, even though it also broke our heart. Listen to this one in private and let the tears flow.
