Culver Creek

Culver Creek is a boarding school in Alabama. It's Pudge's first year. There is many rules that no one follows. Mr. Starnes, the dean of students, is called the Eagle. He sees absolutely everything that happens on campus because he lives in the dorm circle

This is a story about happiness.

"Very little is needed to make a happy life."

Man vs. Self

When Alaska died, Pudge and the Colonel thought it was because they let her leave in the middle of the night when she was drunk. They set off fireworks to distract the Eagle. Therefore, if they wouldn't have let her leave, she would not have died.

"She's not dead. She's alive. She's alive somewhere. She's in the woods. Alaska is hiding in the woods and she's not dead, she's just hiding. She's just playing a trick on us." -Pudge (page 140)
