7/1/07: read a lot of good reviews and enjoyed rocketing through it, but call me crazy, if you've read one book about a boy's first love and loss, you've read them all? still, good writing. a possible YA book club read?

4/10/09: i love this book completely now, understand it in a way that i didn't upon the first read. i've seen the cult of john green grow, see nerdfighters as kindred spirits, felt myself turn into putty watching him speak of reading and writing and the characters he creates because this is the nugget of YA literature and what it can do. i didn't love alaska young the first time we met, or miles or the colonel, but i'm so glad my MFYA class demanded i meet with them again.
