Looking for Alaska - John Green This was an excellent book. It's about a boy who goes away to boarding school his junior year in high school, because he doesn't have friends at his current school, and because he wants to find "the Great Perhaps". He ends up with friends, including the enigmatic, unpredictable Alaska. There's an excellent discussion of life and death, unfairness and suffering, and of course, as in most YA novels, evolution into adulthood (or something like it).
