"The Fault in Our Stars" Readalikes
To shake up his play-it-safe, stay-at-home lifestyle, Florida teenager Miles "Pudge" Halter convinces his parents to let him attend a coed boarding school in Alabama. There he becomes instant friends with Chip, his edgy roommate, and with Chip's friend, the sexy, daring, and impossibly beautiful Alaska Young.
With his trademark brilliant wit and heart-stopping emotional honesty, the Printz Medal-winning author of Looking for Alaska returns with a novel about a teenage girl who has mysteriously vanished, and the boy who looks for her by following the clues she left behind just for him.
This is the story of what it's like to grow up in high school. More intimate than a diary, Charlie's letters are singular and unique, hilarious and devastating. We may not know where he lives. We may not know to whom he is writing. All we know is the world he shares.
August Pullman is not an ordinary ten-year-old kid. Sure, he's a huge Star Wars fan, he loves his dog, and he's got a pretty good sense of humor. But August was born with a craniofacial abnormality, a genetic defect that caused his facial features to be severely deformed. His life has never been "normal."
