Looking for Alaska

Looking for Alaska - Excellent. (What? That's not a good enough review? Fine.) I picked a fantastic book to start my year off with, and John Green is amazing. I've talked before about how the best books - no matter what genre they're in - are good because they are somehow, true. Even if it's a fantasy about dragons and talking acorns (which this book is not, in case you were wondering), it's got to feel true, or it's not going to be a great book. There was so much truth in this book that I wanted to rewrite it, so that the characters didn't have to live through the things they were living through. (Since that's how I feel about my own life when it's particularly hard to get through, there could be nothing truer.) Definitely a keeper; highly recommend.
