What it's about: Miles "Pudge" Halter has lived a safe, uneventful life, and he transfers to Culver Creek Boarding School junior year in search for a "Great Perhaps." He is obsessed with reading biographies and subjects' last words. When Miles goes to Alabama, he meets Alaska Young, a girl who is gorgeous, clever, funny, unstable, and utterly fascinating. She steals his heart and nothing is ever the same.
Considering this book is also by the author of The Fault In Our Stars, I think it's clear that this should definitely be on your reading list!
Amazon review: 4.5/5 stars
