Before. Miles “Pudge” Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave “the Great Perhaps” even more (Francois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . .
After. Nothing is ever the same.

Katherine V thought boys were gross
Katherine X just wanted to be friends
Katherine XVIII dumped him in an e-mail
K-19 broke his heart
When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type happens to be girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact.
On a road trip miles from home, this anagram-happy, washed-up child prodigy has ten thousand dollars in his pocket, a bloodthirsty feral hog on his trail, and an overweight, Judge Judy-loving best friend riding shotgun--but no Katherines. Colin is on a mission to prove The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability, which he hopes will predict the future of any relationship, avenge Dumpees everywhere, and finally win him the girl.
Love, friendship, and a dead Austro-Hungarian archduke add up to surprising and heart-changing conclusions in this ingeniously layered comic novel about reinventing oneself.
One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two teens—both named Will Grayson—are about to cross paths. As their worlds collide and intertwine, the Will Graysons find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, building toward romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history’s most fabulous high school musical.
Hilarious, poignant, and deeply insightful, John Green and David Levithan’s collaborative novel is brimming with a double helping of the heart and humor that have won them both legions of faithful fans.

Miles Halter is fascinated by famous last words—and tired of his safe life at home. He leaves for boarding school to seek what the dying poet Francois Rabelais called “The Great Perhaps.” Much awaits Miles at Culver Creek, including Alaska Young, who will pull Miles into her labyrinth and catapult him into the Great Perhaps.
Looking for Alaska brilliantly chronicles the indelible impact one life can have on another. A modern classic, this stunning debut marked #1 bestselling author John Green’s arrival as a groundbreaking new voice in contemporary fiction.
Noted illustrator John Green has rendered 25 exceptionally clear and precise full-color plates of the body's organs and systems: the skeleton, muscles, and skin, as well as the respiratory, digestive, circulatory, reproductive, and other systems. Illustrations also focus on such important organs as the eye, ear, and brain. Each carefully labeled plate has been reviewed for accuracy and is accompanied by an extensive caption written by Dr. John W. Harcup, clearly explaining the nature and purpose of the body part or system represented.
Its precision and clarity make this book an ideal supplement to school courses in biology, health, and other subjects, but it will also appeal to general readers, who will enjoy its wealth of superb illustrations illuminating the incredibly complex and highly specialized workings of the human body.

A Christmas Eve snowstorm transforms one small town into a romantic haven, the kind you see only in movies. Well, kinda. After all, a cold and wet hike from a stranded train through the middle of nowhere would not normally end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger. And no one would think that a trip to the Waffle House through four feet of snow would lead to love with an old friend. Or that the way back to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks. Thanks to three of today’s bestselling teen authors—John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle—the magic of the holidays shines on these hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and breathtaking kisses.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
The Primer has been written for those who are new to VBA programming and the Excel object model. It introduces the VBA language and the features of the language that are common to all VBA applications. It explains the relationship between collections, objects, properties, methods, and events and shows how to relate these concepts to Excel through its object model. It also shows how to use the Visual Basic Editor and its multitude of tools, including how to obtain help.
The middle section of the book takes the key objects in Excel and shows, through many practical examples, how to go about working with those objects. The techniques presented have been developed through the exchange of ideas of many talented Excel VBA programmers over many years and show the best way to gain access to workbooks, worksheets, charts, ranges, and so on. The emphasis is on efficiency—that is, how to write code that is readable and easy to maintain and that runs at maximum speed. In addition, the chapters devoted to accessing external databases detail techniques for accessing data in a range of formats.
The final four chapters of the book address the following advanced issues: linking Excel to the Internet, writing code for international compatibility, programming the Visual Basic Editor, and how to use the functions in the Win32 API (Windows 32-bit Application Programming Interface).
The John Green Collection includes Printz Award–winning Looking for Alaska, Printz Honor book An Abundance of Katherines, Edgar Award–winning Paper Towns, and #1 New York Times–bestselling The Fault in Our Stars.

Após o mais recente e traumático pé na bunda, o Colin que só namora Katherines resolve cair na estrada. Dirigindo o Rabecão de Satã, com seu caderninho de anotações no bolso e o melhor amigo no carona, o ex-garoto prodígio, viciado em anagramas e PhD em levar o fora, descobre sua verdadeira missão: elaborar e comprovar o Teorema Fundamental da Previsibilidade das Katherines, que tornará possível antever, através da linguagem universal da matemática, o desfecho de qualquer relacionamento antes mesmo que as duas pessoas se conheçam.
Uma descoberta que vai entrar para a história, vai vingar séculos de injusta vantagem entre Terminantes e Terminados e, enfim, elevará Colin Singleton diretamente ao distinto posto de gênio da humanidade. Também, é claro, vai ajudá-lo a reconquistar sua garota. Ou, pelo menos, é isso o que ele espera.
Assim que a noite de aventuras acaba e um novo dia se inicia, Q vai para a escola e então descobre que o paradeiro da sempre enigmática Margo é agora um mistério. No entanto, ele logo encontra pistas e começa a segui-las. Impelido em direção a um caminho tortuoso, quanto mais Q se aproxima de Margo, mais se distancia da imagem da garota que ele achava que conhecia.
Mas antes, um breve resumo de como tudo aconteceu:
Miles Halter vivia uma vidinha sem graça e sem muitas emoções (ou amizades) na Flórida. Ele tinha um gosto peculiar: memorizar as últimas palavras de grandes personalidades da história. Uma dessas personalidades, François Rabelais, um escritor do século XV, disse no leito de morte que ia em “busca de um Grande Talvez”. Para não ter que esperar a morte para encontrar seu Grande Talvez, Miles decide fazer as malas e partir. Ele vai para a Escola Culver Creek, um internato no ensolarado Alabama.
Lá, ele conhece Alasca Young. Ela tem em seu livro preferido, O general em seu labirinto, de Gabriel García Márquez, a pergunta para a qual busca incessantemente uma resposta: “Como vou sair desse labirinto?” Inteligente, engraçada, louca e incrivelmente sexy, Alasca vai arrastar Miles para seu labirinto e catapultá-lo sem misericórdia na direção do Grande Talvez. Miles se apaixona por Alasca, mesmo sem entendê-la, mesmo tentando sem sucesso decifrar o enigma indecifrável de seus olhos verde-esmeralda.
