About the Book

Winner of the Michael L. Printz AwardAn ALA Best Book for Young AdultsAn ALA Quick PickA Los Angeles Times 2005 Book Prize FinalistA New York Public Library Book for the Teen AgeA 2005 Booklist Editor's ChoiceA 2005 School Library Journal Best Book of the YearBefore. Miles "Pudge" Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave "the Great Perhaps" even more (Francois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . . After. Nothing is ever the same.

Excerpts

THE WEEK BEFORE I left my family and Florida and the rest of my minor life to go to boarding school in Alabama, my mother insisted on throwing me a going-away party.
