Book to Screen Teen Book Club
In 2021, our teen book club will focus on books that have been made into tv shows or movies.
January’s Book of the Month is “Looking for Alaska” by John Green. After we discuss the book, we will watch the first episode of the miniseries “Looking for Alaska”. We will discuss the book and then watch the first episode of the miniseries together.
Feel free to still come for the discussion and show even if you didn’t read the book!
“Looking for Alaska” by John Green
Before. 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.
