Alex convinced me to select Looking for Alaska by John Green for February's Cafe Library. Alex is a senior and to say the least LOVES John Green's work. He often visits Green's vlogs online and keeps me up-dated with what's going on in his world. The other reason I chose Looking for Alaska is that Alex volunteered to lead the discussion!
Summary: "Sixteen-year-old Miles' first year at Culver Creek Preparatory School in Alabama includes good friends and great pranks, but is defined by the search for answers about life and death after a fatal car crash. "
Seems like John Green has the right combination of humor and real world issues for teens. I'm looking forward to Alex's discussion.
