    Var är Alaska? : en roman av John Green (MarchingBandMan)
    MarchingBandMan: The other quasi-existentialist John Green book. Miles Halter deals with existentialism/nihilism in a different way than Aza Holmes, yet this earlier, rawer YA novel expounds on similar themes.

Fairly typical good teen fiction. Minimal parental figures but not caricatures. Teens who are more philosophical and poetical and interesting than most. Drama and intrigue, a harrowing adventure and a neat ending that is not wholly Hollywood. Og, and some mental health anxiety to make the story very trendy for today's youth.
But decent for what it is. ( )

Russell Pickett is missing. The wealthy businessman is just gone....no trace, no calls or contact with his kids, no activity on his bank accounts. There is a $100,000 reward for information leading to his whereabouts. Local teenager Aza and her sidekick Daisy decide to become amateur sleuths, hoping to claim the reward. Aza tries to keep her spiraling obsessive thoughts under control, while suffering through therapy appointments and being lax with her meds. Her friend Daisy helps to keep her functioning, although it is at times more than she can take. They befriend Pickett's older son, Davis and his little brother, Noah. Where is Russell Pickett?? But, really, this novel isn't about Russell Pickett at all. It's about relationships, mental illness, family, emotions.....just about everything else but Russell Pickett. And....it's beautiful.

At first, I didn't know whether I was going to like this book or not. I try to steer away from novels that are deeply emotional or deal with difficult subjects. I don't like to finish a story and feel depressed. But I gave this one a chance. I'm glad I did. While the book is hard-hitting and emotional, I didn't finish it with depressed feelings. I felt like the story was realistic....a coming-of-age tale told with truth and hope.

The characters are engaging and realistic. I loved and sympathized with them all. Aza is my favorite. She battles her demons with all her might, while realizing her faults and mistakes. She comes to understand so many things about herself and others. She learns to love, to forgive and to respect herself. Daisy is a close runner up. She has her faults, but she loves her best friend. No matter how difficult that is at times.

Before I read this book, I wondered why the coverart was so weird....but now I totally get it. The cover is perfect.

This is the first book by John Green that I have read. I'm definitely going to read more. This was a "heavier'' story than I usually allow myself to read, but incredible.

I really enjoyed this. Probably preferred it to TFIOS. I don't suffer from anxiety but I feel this book really helped me understand that perspective and how hard it can be just to do normal things. Would definitely recommend. ( )

This book is directed toward an older crowd of students. This book gives an inside scoop of a 16 year old girl who has a compulsive eating disorder. It’s a story on how she has to continue dealing with this issue, while maintaining going to school and her social life. A mental illness book that should be read. “I want to be able to grow and be like everyone else without this disorder.” ( )

I haven't enjoyed a John Green book so much since Looking for Alaska (my favorite book by a well known author). It was an interesting ride and the portrayal of mental illness was messy and real. ( )

At the time I first realized I might be fictional, my weekdays were spent at a publicly funded institution on the north side of Indianapolis called White River High School, where I was required to eat lunch at a particular time -- between 12:37 P.M. and 1:14 P.M. -- by forces so much large than myself that I couldn't even begin to identify them.

No one ever says goodbye unless they want to see you again.
But I was beginning to learn that your life is a story told about you, not one that you tell....You think you're the painter, but you're the canvas.
Your now is not your forever.
I thought about him asking me if I'd ever been in love. It's  a weird phrase in English, in love, like it's a sea you drown in or a town you live in. You don't get to be in anything else---in friendship or in anger or in hope. All you can be in is love.
