Detailed item info

Close friendships, hilarious pranks, and illicit smoking await scrawny, nerdy high-school junior Miles Halter when he goes away to Culver Creek, an Alabama boarding school. Immediately nicknamed Pudge by his roommate--a small, well-muscled scholarship student called the Colonel--Miles becomes a part of a tightly-knit group of pranksters headed by a sensual, opinionated, cigarette-smoking, booze-swilling girl named Alaska. Miles is intrigued by her, half in love, and desperate to discover the truth behind her mysterious mood swings and wild behavior. Each character in this sensitive, funny, and sad young-adult novel struggles with the agonies of being a teenager, perfectly stated in Alaska's own Religion term paper question: "How will we ever get out of this labyrinth of suffering?" Winner of the prestigious 2006 Michael L. Printz Award for Excellence in Young Adult Literature.

Before. Miles �Pudge� Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave �the Great Perhaps� even more (François Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . . After. Nothing is ever the same.
