Looking for Alaska is a pretty good book. It takes a while to actually get into the book very far. It has a before and after part in the book. It about a kid named Miles who gets the nickname Pudge. He moves to a boarding school. The book is about all of his adventures there. Some parts in it turn out to be pretty ironic. At one part "Pudge" even becomes incognito to distract someone. He meets a girl named Alaska when he gets there.
