Looking for Alaska

by John Green

So first thing to know is that Alaska isn't a place, it's a girl.  But this book is enjoyed by both females and males and has been very, very popular.  It should make a great movie.

Wow, what a page turner this one is. Yes, it is a dystopian fiction and a bit similar to The Giver but it has its own strong style.

 
 5th Wave Yancey
The 5th Wave
