  • Title: Looking for Alaska
  • Author: John Green
  • AR Points: 11
  • Genre: realistic fiction
  • Page I'm On: done
This book is very interesting in the way it is organized. Instead of the different parts of the book being divided by chapters, Looking for Alaska is separated into "days before". Every new section is labeled with this instead of a chapter name or number. The numbers continue to decrease until we are confronted with the climax of the story, an important event that I don't want to give away because it will ruin the story. This is a great book about teenagers and the choices they make. What's really great about this book is the philosophical questions that are posed throughout it. There are two quotes that play a large role in the story: "I go to seek a Great Perhaps" and "How will we ever escape this labyrinth of suffering?". Again, I don't want to give anything away, so if you like a book written similar to diary entries and want a little bit of a mystery or philosophical read? Check this one out!
