Looking for Alaska
by John Green
* * * Stars (Pretty good)
I thought that this book was okay, but definitely not the best book I have read in the past month. But first let’s focus on the positives. I really enjoyed the way that the Green had the labyrinth tied into it. The labyrinth is basically this metaphor that Alaska made up to describe life. I thought it was really neat at the end how when she died they made that into an essay question. But one thing that I think Green could’ve refrained from is the inappropriateness. Honestly some of those scenes just did not benefit the plot at ALL. Anyways I guess the book was pretty good and I would recommend it to anybody who likes John Green books, or anybody who likes weird twisted suicide mysteries.

The main plot of the novel is the search of a young girl named Alaska. Often noted for being introverted and reclusive, only few people know much about her. She touched one of her classmates, and taught him how to live. Now he will harness that same energy and use his strengths to rescue and bring Alaska to where she belongs – at home. I enjoyed the novel due to its realistic characters.
