Looking for alaska

The book looking for Alaska, is hands down my favorite book! I would say this is one of my favorite book because it doesn’t show the cookie cutter teenagers, and gives realness of what some teenagers voyage into. Some people don’t like the book because it is a little explicit to drugs and drinking, but just like John Green said “This book has never been marketed to 12 year old’s, never.” My favorite character is Alaska, she is described as such a gorgeous girl but extremely emotional. In a weird i love that she emotionally distressed, it shows teenagers that being different is alright. Alaska Young shows girls so many things, like to stand up for yourself, be spontaneous, and even flirty just like she is with “Pudge.” My favorite thing about Alaska is her being outgoing, in the book she is always smiling and thinking of new fun ideas…

He’s mine. He doesn’t know it yet.
I place my hands on his chest while staring intently into his eyes; he doesn’t pull away, as if I have challenged him.
The tight crowd squeezes in around us, this hides the fact that I have just walked up and pushed myself against this random man. Uninhibited, without any doubt, I lock eyes with him.
He’s doing his best to assess who, and what I’m doing. Only moments before I entered the bar, only to negotiate through the congested crowd, heading directly for him. All social rules and appropriate conduct melted away from my sincere and hungry expression. He is looking deep into my eyes, trying to make sense of this senseless event, and as he thinks his lips curl up at the corners “Was she on drugs?” “Do I know her?” startled and intrigued he tries to reason “Has she mistaken me for someone else”? I’m not on drugs. He doesn’t know me. I don’t think he is someone else. It doesn’t matter.
It’s him. I’ve never had a reaction to anyone like this before. Shy, awkward, and unpopular, this is not my standard behavior.
Under the pressure he cracks “Hi”. I answer sort of trance-like “Hi”. He tries again, almost laughing “I’m Ansell”. “Ansell, I’m Liz”.
What hold could this stranger have on me to persuade me to deviate from myself? Perhaps it is the soft caress of night which I have missed so dearly, or the threat of time closing in on me, desperate to take all that I can, before it’s gone.
He works on the river, he buys me a beer, and I can’t stop smiling.

The Great Denali Book Project

Denali_Skies_Cover_for_Kindle (1)One small gesture, a quick exchange, or a premeditated intention is all that is required to connect us. The world is full of phenomenal coincidences and this book was not simply a circumstance, but a very directed  message for you.

It reminds you and I that we are more the same than different, and when we choose not to become distracted and preoccupied with the big events and interactions in our lives, we can refocus this energy to the smaller more amazing moments.

These moments that captivate us and remind us to dream, play, and follow our hearts desires. When we are true to ourselves, and follow these impulses that sweat from our compressed and broken souls we may just find the beauty, and the oh-so amazing way life can sneak up and smash us in the face! 

 This happened to you because you are a part of this. As a part of this you have a job to do, and you’ll do it well.

Let’s see who you connect to through this vision and story, that somehow pulled you in as you find yourself part of the story’s story.

Did you leave it on a bench in the park, on the table in the Library? Did you sneak it in between the best seller’s on a shelf at Target? Did the book make it to an airport, and escaped even further?

How far will this story reach and touch and grow?
