Praise and awards for Looking for Alaska

“What sings and soars in this gorgeously told tale is Green’s mastery of language and the sweet, rough edges of Pudge’s voice. Girls will cry and boys will find love, lust, loss and longing in Alaska’s vanilla-and-cigarette’s scent.”            
–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Alive with sweet, self-deprecating humor.…like Phineas in John Knowles’s A Separate Peace, Green draws Alaska so lovingly, in self-loathing darkness as energetic light.”
–School Library Journal, starred review

“Miles is an articulate spokesperson for the legions of teens searching for life meaning.”
–BCCB, starred review

“Readers will only hope that this is not the last word from this promising new author.”
–Publishers Weekly

“Green…has a writer’s voice, so self-assured and honest that one is startled to learn that this novel is his first. The anticipated favorable comparisons to Holden Caufield are richly deserved in this highly recommended addition to young adult literature.”

“The spirit of Holden Caulfield lives on.”

“Compelling…What sets this novel apart is the brilliant, insightful, suffering but enduring voice.”                               
–Chicago Tribune

“Funny, sad, inspiring, and always compelling.”   

“Stunning conclusion . . . one worthy of a book this good.”
–Philadelphia Inquirer
