    Last words

    Miles "Pudge" Halter is abandoning his safe-okay, boring-life. Fascinated by the last words of famous people, Pudge leaves for boarding school to seek what a dying Rabelais called the "Great Perhaps."
    Pudge becomes encircled by friends whose lives are everything but safe and boring. Their nucleus is razor-sharp, sexy, and self-destructive Alaska, who has perfected the arts of pranking and evading school rules. Pudge falls impossibly in love. When tragedy strikes the close-knit group, it is only in coming face-to-face with death that Pudge discovers the value of living and loving unconditionally.
    John Green's stunning debut marks the arrival of a stand-out new voice in young adult fiction.

    • Totally Great

      I absoluety loved reading this book, and I'm glad I bought it. It's a book I would definitely read again and I would absolutely recommend it to a friend. It's more for the range of teeangers or young adults, but it has a fantastic storyline. It keeps your interest and brings emotions, something I look for in a book. Hope this helps, happy reading.
