Y por ello, con la intención de hacer realidad el mayor deseo de Hazel -conocer a su escritor favorito-, cruzarán juntos el Atlántico para vivir una aventura contrarreloj, tan catártica como desgarradora.

Miles hat die Schule gewechselt. Auf dem Internat verknallt er sich in die schöne Alaska. Sie ist das Zentrum ihres Sonnensystems, der magische Anziehungspunkt des Internats. Wer um sie kreist, ist glücklich und verletzlich gleichermaßen, euphorisch und immer nah am Schulverweis. Alaska mag Lyrik, nächtliche Diskussionen über philosophische Absurditäten, heimliche Glimmstängel im Wald und die echte wahre Liebe. Miles ist fasziniert und überfordert zugleich. Dass hinter dieser verrückten, aufgekratzten Schale etwas Weiches und Verletzliches steckt, ist offensichtlich. Wer ist Alaska wirklich?
