The book came in three days and is amazing. The book includes deleted scenes from John green’s original draft and the pages grey so you know. The book also includes an introduction from John green himself. This book hits home considering I see myself in Alaska and all the characters for that matter. This book convinced me to stay in the labyrinth of suffering because we’re all going to the same place, where ever that is.
