The unmissable first novel from bestselling and award-winning author of The Fault in our Stars.

"If people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane."

Miles Halter's whole life has been one big non-event, until he meets Alaska Young.

Gorgeous, clever and undoubtedly screwed-up, Alaska draws Miles into her reckless world and irrevocably steals his heart. For Miles, nothing can ever be the same again.

Looking for Alaska brilliantly captures the exquisite painful joy of living and loving. Poignant, funny, heartbreaking and compelling, this novel will stay with you forever.

        Praise for John Green: "Electric ... Filled with staccato bursts of humor and tragedy" Jodi Picoult "A novel of life and death and the people caught in between, 'The Fault in Our Stars' is John Green at his best. You laugh, you cry, and then you come back for more" Markus Zusak, author of The Book Thief "Damn near genius ... Simply devastating ... Fearless in the face of powerful, uncomplicated, unironized emotion" TIME "Funny ... Poignant ... Luminous" Entertainment Weekly

        John Green

        John Green is an American writer of young adult fiction and a YouTube vlogger and educator.

        He won the 2006 Printz Award for his debut novel, Looking for Alaska, and reached number one on a New York Times Best Seller list with The Fault in Our Stars in January 2012
