My assistant Amanda has been a John Green fan for ages, which is one of the reasons I decided to start giving his stuff a read.
Alaska sets Pudge up with a girl, Lara. Moreover, in the end what really matter are the learnings from each friend we encounter in our lives. Green just amalgamates incompatible personality traits without a shred of realism. There's essentially no time leftover to get up to any trouble, she said.

Yes, I like Alaska Young in the book because she was portrayed as a witty, humorous, sexy, but self-destructive and always felt screwed up everything in her life.
It's like watching a funeral of someone you don't know, to me. Listen guys, smoking: not cool. John Green has said that he went to a similar boarding school. Maybe if I wasn't basically tapped on the shoulder and demanded these reactions I would be better at having them, but lines fall flat and soggy like cigarettes tossed casually into some cliche prep-school lake: The Colonel let go of my sweater and I reached down and picked up the cigarettes. Plus it's cool since I was born in Alaska.

Miles is taken aback by the bluntness of this question, and he is surprised to hear Lara say such a thing—it is more like something Alaska would say.
