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.
