This amazing novel is the first and one of the best works of Young Adult literature master John Green. Deeply moving and extremely clever, this novel explores everything about life and death while keeping its young characters firmly in their own world. Miles, Alaska, The Colonel, Takumi…. they are never anything more than themselves, even on paper. They are just teenagers. Facing some particularly difficult circumstances, yes, but they are still teens, and the narrative never loses sight of that. Green captures adolescence in a way so few Young Adult authors can – honestly. Every character of his is not only compelling and endlessly fascinating, but they are also so real it is as though they are about to walk off the page.
Readers will laugh, think and ultimately be left tearful and breathless. The perfect teen novel. Recommended for ages 14+. Contains coarse language, sexual references and mature themes.
