"In the dark beside me, she smelled of sweat and sunshine and vanilla and on that thin-mooned night I could see little more than her silhouette, but even in the dark, I could see her eyes - fierce emeralds. And not just beautiful, but hot too." BEFORE. Miles Halter's whole life has been one big non-event until he starts at anything-but-boring Culver Creek Boarding School and meets Alaska Young. Gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, screwed up and utterly fascinating she pulls Miles into her world, launches him into a new life, and steals his heart. But when tragedy strikes, and Miles comes face-to-face with death he discovers the value of living and loving unconditionally. AFTER: Nothing will ever be the same. Poignant, funny, heartbreaking and compelling, this novel will stay with you forever.Hide synopsis

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.
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.
