********
 First I thought Looking for Alaska deal with looking for a way to Alaska. But it is not. It deal with life and growing up. I love all the character here. And I love John Green so much that I hate him too for leaving me broken-heartedly after reading this. This book is divided with 'Before' and 'After' of Miles life. Trough before we can see his life changing in the Culver Creek. And trough after we can see him struggling after the event. And I love this book cover instead of the one with smoke. I love the flower and the font. I really do hope they turn this book into movie.
