Looking for Alaska by John Green

Looking for Alaska

Before. Miles “Pudge” Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave “the Great Perhaps” even more (Francois Rabelais, poet).

    That's me, realizing I was about to give a big one star to a super popular book on Goodreads. It didn't stop me. This book was beyond stupid.Miles is a little nerd boy from Florida, he is going away to boarding school hoping for a new life or maybe his "Great Perhaps". The Great Perhaps comes from ...
