Looking for Alaska by John Green
I have read another book by John Green, and it certainly didn't disappoint me.
The main character, Miles is a bit of a nerd. He collects famous people's last words, and has no real friends. He decides to go to boarding school in Alabama. He gets a roommate called Miles, and through him he also becomes friends with Alaska, Takumi and Lara. The book is divided in a before and an after. 136 days before a tragedy and then 136 days after. The life in High School in the USA with rules and violation of the rules is funny and very well described. It's a well written young adult novel about being different, friendship, love and thoughts about life.
Other books by John Green I have read and recommend:
Turtles all the Way Down
An Abundance of Katherines
The Fault in Our Stars
