This book was truly epic. Not in the hero-beats-dragon-with-awesome-moves kind of way but in the this-is-the-everyday-but-not-everyday-search-for-meaning-in-life. The book is split into two parts, before and after. I won't tell you before or after what but it's pretty significant and might possibly rip your heart out. So the thing happens and everything is thrown out of wack which leads to the main character and his friends searching for the true girl behind the mask of Alaska. She's the kind of girl who is a true maze, a labyrinth if you catch my drift *winks*. Hence the name Looking for Alaska.

It's such a sad book but it helps you realize that the world isn't just your own little bubble. It helps you realize there is more out there and more out there for you. The 'Great Perhaps'. This book mesmerized me.

So here's the spoilers version of my review:
