Today I read, Looking for Alaska by John Green. (I was lucky enough to catch a cold so I had a great excuse to stay in bed all day and read!)
It was a fabulous, captivating book!
John Green provided some questions he was asked via Twitter and Tumblr. (So cool.) A student asked, "What were two major symbols in the book and who was the enemy?" I SHUTTERED as I read this. If my high school teacher had asked me to answer these questions in an essay, I probably would have hated the book.
There are so many deeper, and more interesting, aspects of the book to discuss (and I will, with my bookclub). When are schools going to change?!?
