Looking for Alaska

Looking for Alaska - John Green This book made me cry on a plane no less, for that it gets five stars. This is a wonderful moving book, a great YA book and it is no wonder that it won the Printz award. At first I wondered how the book was going to come together and have any substance because it seemed almost silly with its high school characters obsessed with smoking and doing pranks, but it certainly delved into some deeper issues by the end of the novel and brought them home.
