Looking for Alaska

“Looking for Alaska,” by John Green is a great young-adult novel. “Looking for Alaska” is about teenagers who want to grow-up. It’s about teenagers figuring themselves out. It’s about teenagers loving, fighting and making mistakes. The main character of the book is a teenager named Miles Halter. Miles’s friends nick-name him Pudge. Pudge is a new kid at the prep school named Culver Creek. Pudge goes to Culver Creek prep school to make new friends and to find himself… he goes there to find his, “Great Perhaps.” What does he find when he gets to Culver Creek?

He finds Alaska.

Alaska is Alaska Young, a beautiful, smart and vivacious teenager. Alaska is a center point of Pudge’s circle-of-friends. She is wild and spontaneous. Everyone thinks they get Alaska… but, they don’t know what’s going on in her head.

Something tragic happens to Alaska. It’s up to Pudge and his circle-of-friends to figure out why.

“Looking for Alaska” is a crazy ride. You love, you laugh and you cry when you read the book. I think everyone should check-out this book. It is powerful and poignant.

All right. That’s it for now. I’ll see you later.

Until then…

P.S. I Still Love You

It’s time for the next part of the, “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” series by Jenny Han. The next part of this series is the second book called, “P.S. I Still Love You.” “P.S. I Still Love You,” is a book about an Asian-American girl who is named Lara Jean. Lara Jean is with her first boyfriend, Peter Kavinsky. Peter and Lara Jean pretended to be boyfriend-and-girlfriend, but became an item. Now, they are truly together. Even though things seem nice and normal there is still trouble for the two of them. Peter is always seen with his ex-girlfriend, Gen. Lara Jean hates that. Lara Jean and Peter break-up.

Then, Lara Jean unexpectedly gets a love-letter from her former crush. Her former crush is named John Ambrose McClaren. Lara Jean spends time with him and even kisses him.

However, Peter professes his love for Lara Jean. Lara Jean and Peter end-up back together at the end of the book.

I loved this book. Lara Jean is as sweet and caring as she was in the first book. I am a fan of Lara Jean and Peter. I’m glad that they get back together at the end-of-the-book. Lara Jean’s crush, John Ambrose McClaren is a nice guy, but I still liked Lara Jean with Peter a lot more.

There’s one last book in the, “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” book series by Jenny Han. I will read it and I will post a review as soon as I am done.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

I loved the book, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, by Jenny Han. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is a book about a girl named Lara Jean Covey. Lara Jean is an average sixteen-year-old girl. She is half-Asian. She likes to watch tv and to hang out with her sisters, Margot and Kitty. When Lara Jean doesn’t spend time with her sisters she does other things… other things like write love letters. Lara Jean wrote five love letters to five soul-consuming, life-altering crushes in her life. She kept these letters in a hatbox in her room.

But, one day something strange happens. The different crushes she wrote love letters to approach Lara Jean with the letters in hand. Somehow the letters were sent out. Her secret crushes aren’t so secret anymore.

What’s a girl to do?

Lara Jean has two crushes that cause chaos in her life. The first crush is a boy named Josh Sanderson. Josh is Margot’s ex-boyfriend. Lara Jean’s second crush is Peter Kavinsky. Peter is a boy that Lara Jean liked since the seventh grade.

One day at school Josh approaches Lara Jean at school to talk. Lara Jean goes up to Peter and kisses him so that Josh doesn’t think she still cares for him.

Who does Lara Jean pick? Which crush is the right one for her?

In the end I think that Lara Jean should end up with Peter. Peter and Lara Jean have great chemistry. The two truly care for each other. They are the best couple in the book.

Who would you pick?

All right, that’s it for this post. Stay tuned for my next update. Until then…
