Description
(Michael L. Printz Award Winner) In John Green's astounding debut from 2005, Miles "Pudge" Halter's whole existence has been one big nonevent, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave the "Great Perhaps" (François Rabelais, poet) even more. He heads off to the sometimes crazy, possibly unstable, and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe—because down the hall is Alaska Young … gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed-up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young, who is an event unto herself. Alaska pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and utterly steals his heart. "What sings and soars in this gorgeously told tale is Green's mastery of language and the sweet, rough edges of Pudge's voice," proclaimed Kirkus Reviews of this New York Times best seller for young adults. "Girls will cry and boys will find love, lust, loss and longing in Alaska's vanilla-and-cigarettes scent."
