    I reread LOOKING FOR ALASKA this past summer and was just as touched the second time around as the first time through.

    I’ve actually never read it. I think it sounds fantastic but I’m not big on sad books. If I know the ending is happy, I’ll grab it but otherwise I tend to stay away. I’m sure I miss out on a ton of great books but I just don’t like closing a book at the end and feeling depressed.
    Enjoy it!
