Synopsis

The unmissable first novel from bestselling and award-winning author of THE FAULT IN OUR STARS and TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN.







"In the dark beside me, she smelled of sweat and sunshine and vanilla and on that thin-mooned night I could see little more than her silhouette, but even in the dark, I could see her eyes - fierce emeralds. And beautiful."





BEFORE. Miles Halter's whole life has been one big non-event until he starts at anything-but-boring Culver Creek Boarding School and meets Alaska Young. Gorgeous, clever, funny and utterly fascinating she pulls Miles into her world, launches him into a new life, and steals his heart. But when tragedy strikes, and Miles comes face-to-face with death he discovers the value of living and loving unconditionally.





AFTER: Nothing will ever be the same.







Poignant, funny, heartbreaking and compelling, this novel will stay with you forever.

Staff Choice

You probably don’t need telling to read this book, but I’m going to do it anyway. Because, like every John Green book since, it’s funny and sad and beautiful and mad and heartbreaking and just a little bit silly sometimes too. Perhaps Alaska steers a little close to the Manic Pixie Dream Girl stereotype for comfort, but even so, I read this years and years ago and it’s stayed with me ever since.
