Chose because: I loved other books by the same author.
Quote: ”..but I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.”
My Thoughts: The third John Green I have read and probably my favourite.While I am beginning to feel Green’s book are rather formulaic - geeky boy meets strong, exciting girl who turns out to have hidden insecurities - this does not make any of the books any less enthralling. Looking for Alaska is so incredible that I found myself wanting to leave the last few pages unread so I wouldn’t have finished it and my experience of it would remain present-tense. I could live inside this book and I feel genuinely bereft that it is over.
