When Miles Halter leaves his average life to seek a "great perhaps" at Culver Creek Boarding School, he gets a little more than he bargained for. New friends and great adventure await Miles, along with the daring and beautiful, Alaska Young. Alaska shows Miles how to take risks and enjoy his new life while still moving towards a new "great perhaps". I really enjoyed this book and it contained very thought provoking ideas about stepping outside of your comfort zone and making a name for yourself. I would highly recommend.
