Summary
Miles Halter finds his life changed by smart and sexy Alaska Young during his first year at an Alabama boarding school.
Critique
This is the first title to garner John Green a Printz Award for excellence in young adult literature. The story is divided into `before` and `after` the catastrophic event that changes Colin and his boarding school friends. The writing is excellent. Older teens will find the story engrossing and the characters appealing.
