So it's fitting that the last words Alaska ever says to Miles refer to a complicated maze. She is beautiful and complex. She isn't like your normal teenage girl at all,if anything shes the opposite. She is one of the main characters other then miles ( who is the narrator in the story) who becomes in love with this crazy girl who makes him question things he didn't before.

Culver Creek Bording school

Culver creek is a small boarding school in Alabama that you can only get into if you rich or if you have a scholarship. Usually the scholarship kids absolutely hate the weekday warriors (the rich kids) so every year at Culver Creek they play viscous pranks on each other and the eagle (who is the principle). There is a forest next to campus that some of the kids go to when they have free time to get away from everything.There is also a lake on campus that happens to be the place that weekday warriors dumps Miles as a prank. The whole campus has lots of little hide outs for the miles and his friends to get away from the eagle and rich kids.
