Happy Easter Everyone!
Here's a great book review coming your way

Miles Halter is fascinated by famous last words and tired of his safe life at home. He leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet Francois Rabelais called the "Great Perhaps." Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young. Clever, funny, screwed-up, and dead sexy, Alaska will pull Miles into her labyrinth and catapult him into the Great Perhaps. 

- Very deep, well-developed characters
- Beautifully written
- Meaningful message
- Has a lot of great quotes
- It contains humour

- Has some very mature content
- Beginning is a little slow

Amazing book!
