This book will make you laugh, will make you cry, and will probably make you yell at your book. All in all, this novel is an amazing story of two lovers who have two completely different personalities that come together, but every book has its plot twists, you just have to read the book to find out what it is.
"You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you will escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present." Alaska feels as if people live according to what is going to happen in the future not the present because people believe it will be better in the future and just fight through the present not live for it.
"If people were rain, I was a drizzle and she was a hurricane." This quote shows how Miles felt so passionately for Alaska but he did not have the courage to talk to her like that because he was so insecure.
"Sometimes you lose a battle but mischief always wins the war." Alaska shows in this quote how "bad" or "mischievous" she is and doesn't get caught often but when she does she's never worried or anxious.
