Narrator Wil Wheaton treats John Green's characters with the respect they deserve in this new audio edition of the 2006 Printz Award-winning novel. Bored, 16-year-old Miles Halter leaves his family home in Florida for boarding school in Alabama, seeking "the great perhaps." He finds a circle of precocious, prank-loving friends, including his intense roommate Chip (a.k.a. "the Colonel") and the moody, enigmatic dream girl, Alaska, with whom Miles becomes instantly obsessed. Each character shines in Wheaton's portrayal--from the deadpan Miles to the gruffly wise religion teacher to shy Romanian immigrant Lara to Alaska herself, with her brash, larger-than-life vivacity. The dialogue crackles with snark and aching earnestness as the characters struggle to cope with life before and after a terrible tragedy.
