    "Before." Miles "Pudge" Halter's whole life has been one big non-event. Then he heads off to the sometimes crazy, possibly unstable, and anything-butboring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed-up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into a new life, and steals his heart. "After."

Loved it!

by Michelle12 on Jan 31, 2010

This book was the third that I'd read by John Green and I had no idea what to expect at first. However, once I started reading I couldn't stop. The plot of the book took such a massive turn that even in the middle when I was already hooked, it pulled me along even farther as the plot thickened. I would definitely recommend reading this book if you enjoyed any of John Green's other books or if you want a nice read.

When first introduced to Alaska Young in the novel, I saw a mirror image of myself: books stacked on every free space of the room because of an inbred fear that I will one day not have anything to read. Albeit our liknesses strayed after that initial point, I am still very fond of Alaska as a character and have put her on my favorites list of strong female characters. A must-read for any young adult.

This book makes you think

by cee08 on Mar 18, 2008

As a young adult reader, I feel that this work widely appeals to today's contemporary society. What young adult hasn't felt the angst of everyday life, hasn't planned the perfect senior prank, hasn't experienced the difficulties of school? As a novel that deals head on with these topics, I think its success is clear. The novel also poses some interesting concepts designed to make the reader ponder these things long after finishing the last chapter. The topics are current, the questions are real, and the plot is easy to relate to. One of the best novels ever, in my opinion!

A powerful book by one of my favorite young adult authors. I enjoy well-written quirky characters, and the main three in this book fit the bill perfectly. I don't want to ruin the twist in the middle, because the shock is a large part of what made the book for me, but I will say that I was far more affected than I would have predicted. I love the unresolved ending, and I have my own idea as to what happened (as, I'm sure, does everyone who's read the book). I enjoyed Green's An Abundance of Katherines more, but that might have something to do with my overwhelming love of footnotes. This one isn't as funny, but it's a more resonating story.

AH MAZING!! (:

I absolutely loved this book. It took me by surprise. This was the very first John Green book I had ever read before. I would also recommend Paper Towns by John as well. (:
