Looking for alaska

The book looking for Alaska, is hands down my favorite book! I would say this is one of my favorite book because it doesn’t show the cookie cutter teenagers, and gives realness of what some teenagers voyage into. Some people don’t like the book because it is a little explicit to drugs and drinking, but just like John Green said “This book has never been marketed to 12 year old’s, never.” My favorite character is Alaska, she is described as such a gorgeous girl but extremely emotional. In a weird i love that she emotionally distressed, it shows teenagers that being different is alright. Alaska Young shows girls so many things, like to stand up for yourself, be spontaneous, and even flirty just like she is with “Pudge.” My favorite thing about Alaska is her being outgoing, in the book she is always smiling and thinking of new fun ideas. Although people have seem to make this book explicit i think it is a great read for a teenager. ” You spend your whole life stuck in a labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that your future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.” At first when I got the book, it sat around because i thought it was a book about going to Alaska.. I finally picked it up, to realize i could not put it down. My other favorite character was Takumi Harihoto, i loved his jokes and thought it was funny that he rapped and did it well. SPOILER ALERT, sorry to all that haven’t read it, but at the end Alaska missed her mothers anniversary of death and rushed to put flowers by her grave and ended up crashing into a cop car. Although Alaska dies, i feel like it made an amazing climax to the book. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an amazing book!

    Face it, cookie-cutter *anything* is bad, let alone people. Books, movies, houses, clothes…being yourself and making things yourself is much better. 🙂
