The book ” looking for Alaska ” does include underage drinking, smoking, and a brief depiction of a intimate scene between all characters, but, the book also shows that there are consequences for your actions. Many of the characters are relatable, and loyal to their friends.
The main themes illustrated in the excerpt text from “ Looking for Alaska ” by John Green are those of education, adapting to new environments and the general challenges of teenage years. These themes are enhanced with the help of the motifs of attraction and revenge and the symbol of the labyrinth.
Alaska’s last words to me were ‘To be continued’, and so I choose the labyrinth, even if there’s no way out, even if we’re all going, even if everything falls apart.” As one final prank, Alaska’s friends steal the bench and install it at the smoking hole, as she’d have wanted. Life goes on, as it must.
To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the most frequently challenged books in the US due to its themes of rape and use of profanity and racial slurs. Unlike the previous case, the book was banned due to the accumulation of complaints over the years.
In the YA novel and show, Alaska dies in a heart-wrenching car accident the night she leaves Culver Creek in a panic. In a panic, Alaska leaves Culver Creek as Pudge and the Colonel help her by distracting the dean without much resistance.

At the beginning of the novel at least, smoking represents fitting in for Miles. For the Colonel and Alaska , smoking cigarettes is a way of defying authority—something the Colonel makes very clear when he smokes in front of the Pelham police officer.
The idea of the book , the deep crux of it, is the tragedy of Miles’s inability to see outside himself, the frustration that he can’t ever envision Alaska as a real, human person. It’s sad that Miles is so limited, and that’s precisely the point. It’s infuriating and wrong that Alaska can’t tell her own story.
