I wanted to spread out the John Green more, but my hold from the library came up sooner than expected so I read this shortly after Paper Towns. Looking for Alaska follows a group of students at a boarding school in Alabama. Like many other coming of age novels it touches on relationships between teenagers (romantic and other). Grief is a major focus of the second half of the book and I think it’s presented well. I’m happy I read these books in the order I did. I enjoyed Paper Towns, but if I hadn’t read it first I would have been annoyed because it feels like a worse retelling of Looking for Alaska.
