Coming-of-Age YA novel

Looking for Alaska

Looking for Alaska

 By: John Green

Genre: YA

Pages: 231

Published: 2006

Read: May

3 out of 5 stars 

Another coming-of-age novel that I feel all teens can enjoy. I feel the story portrays enough aspects of teen life to be relevant to all teens in one facet or another – from love, school, drugs, and friendships.  It shares characteristics with Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, however I personally enjoyed the writing style of Looking for Alaska more.  Being an adult and reading this novel, I definitely believe they would be more enjoyed if read while a teen. I have read Will Grayson, Will Grayson by both John Green and David Levithan and loved it. I highly recommend it.

This is John Green's first YA novel. His website is www.johngreenbooks.com.
