Looking for Alaska by John Green

I really don't even feel like writing a review on this book. But I'll do it anyways. Cuz that's just what I do. 
Genre: YA Contemporary
Pages: 262
Type: Standalone 
Rating: 3 stars 
Synopsis: Before. Miles "Pudge" Halter's whole existence has been one big nonevent, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave the "Great Perhaps" (François Rabelais, poet) even more. He heads off to the sometimes crazy, possibly unstable, 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, who is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart.

After. Nothing is ever the same.

The book was divided into two parts: Before and After. I won't tell you what that means, because it will spoil. I didn't guess what happened but it was quite shocking. If you've read The Fault in Our Stars, you might guess. Or... Maybe not. 
 This book wasn't as satisfactory as I expected it to be. I was very unhappy about this. I don't have much to say about it, although I will leave a link to a video you have to check out. For sure. And listen to it carefully. Even if your blood might boil when you look at the title. 
Have a good day!
