'Waiting On Wednesday' is a weekly event hosted @ Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Mine is a book that's been out for a few years, but with my recent obsession with John Green after reading 'The Fault In Our Stars', the next time I get some money, this book is what i'm ordering off Amazon!
Looking For Alaska, by John Green, published March 3rd, 2005, from Dutton Juvenile.
Miles "Pudge" Halter is abandoning his safe-okay, boring-life.
Fascinated by the last words of famous people, Pudge leaves for boarding
school to seek what a dying Rabelais called the "Great Perhaps."
Pudge becomes encircled by friends whose lives are everything but safe
and boring. Their nucleus is razor-sharp, sexy, and self-destructive
Alaska, who has perfected the arts of pranking and evading school rules.
Pudge falls impossibly in love. When tragedy strikes the close-knit
group, it is only in coming face-to-face with death that Pudge discovers
the value of living and loving unconditionally.
John Green's stunning debut marks the arrival of a stand-out new voice in young adult fiction.
My thoughts: just wow, okay? WOW. This book looks so amazing!
