Miles is going to boarding school. But it's not like he's leaving a bunch of friends and is totally depressed by the thought. That's right, he actually does want to go. When he finally gets there, he meets his roommate, Chip Martin, more commonly know as the Colonel, who introduces him to Alaska Young, the pretty girl a few doors down that Miles it totally fascinated with. They hang out and become friends throughout the school year. But then, something terrible happens and everything becomes completely different.
The book really held my attention. It's split up into two parts, before and after. Luckily I was able to overpower the curiosity that made me want to flip right to the after and know what happens and I am so glad that I did. Which is pretty much my way of saying that if you want the book to be as wonderful as it was for me, then don't you dare look ahead.
This book is great and I would definitely recommend it to anyone I know. I liked it so much I don't trust very many people with it and therefore have only allowed two people to read it, my fellow book lover/best friend and my older brother. This book can be liked by both girls and boys. And I think the cover is absolutely gorgeous. I know, you're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover but it's nice to have something pretty to look at when you're done.
Also if you like this book, check his other book, An Abundance of Katherines. I haven't read it yet but I'm sure it's just as good.
