I was honestly surprised at how hard this book was to put down. and definitely wasn’t expecting to cry at the end, or at all, but alas i did, multiple times. I was a little skeptical and didn’t think it would be this good mainly because it is by John Green (no hate to john green as a person but…yk didnt love the fault in our stars). But wow did he prove me wrong. I think i find it this amazing because i felt very connected to Alaska’s character. Although it was a very emotional book, the ending was so beautiful and hopeful (for lack of a better word). I closed the book while tearing up, but smiling. Would definitely recommend, to the right person.

It was a pretty enjoyable book, but I had a few issues with it.
Spoiler  Once Alaska died pudge got pretty annoying. And I get he was in love with her and that he wanted/needed answers but he became completely narrow sited into believing he was the only one who cared, and I don’t think anyone when they loose someone thinks like that. I do love how the book ended with the final essay for religion, that was very clever.
